Riverhounds sign Jamaican forward


PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Riverhounds have signed Jamaican forward Kenroy Howell to a one-year deal with a team option for the 2018 season, the team announced Monday.

Howell, 23, is transferring from Waterhouse FC of the Jamaican National Premier League. Howell, a native of Manchester, Jamaica, started his professional career with Waterhouse in 2013-14, notching 15 career goals, including 10 in 2015-16. Howell went on loan to CD Dragón of the Primera División in El Salvador in July, making 16 appearances and scoring his first goal in a 2-1 loss to the Portland Timbers at the CONCACAF Champions League in August.

“Kenroy came across our radar in watching the Champions League,” Riverhounds coach Dave Brandt said. “In the two matches we watched of Dragón playing Portland Timbers, he was fantastic – close to a full 90 minutes both home and away against a very good Timbers team. He’s a left-footed attacking player that can play as a forward, can play as a winger, and we just think has a lot of talent and ability to make a great addition to this club.”

Ryan Adeleye (Club option exercised in December)
