FC Cincy acquire goalkeeper Bobby Edwards

CINCINNATI – FC Cincinnati have acquired goalkeeper Bobby Edwards. The goalkeeper most recently played for Portadown FC in Northern Ireland’s NIFL Championship.

Edwards, 24, will be added to FC Cincinnati’s roster upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate when the Primary Transfer Window opens on Feb. 12.

The goalkeeper played four collegiate seasons for three different programs. Edwards began his collegiate career at St. Joseph’s University (2014-16). After an injury forced him to redshirt in his junior season, Edwards transferred Monmouth University (2017) where he played his senior season. With one season of collegiate eligibility remaining, Edwards played as a graduate transfer at Mount St. Mary’s University (2018).

The goalkeeper totaled 62 appearances, including 60 starts, registering 262 saves and earning 11 shutouts during his four collegiate seasons. Following his final year of NCAA eligibility, Edwards signed a professional contract with Portadown FC in June of 2019.

FC Cincinnati will return to the field for their second MLS season on Sunday, March 1, when the team opens the season on the road against the New York Red Bulls. After a road game at Atlanta United FC on Saturday, March 7, FCC will open its 2020 home slate on Saturday, March 14, when the team hosts D.C. United at Nippert Stadium in a 5:30 p.m. game.

Season Ticket Memberships are still available for purchase and start at $230 per ticket. A 2020 Season Ticket Membership also secures fans’ place on the club’s priority list, which will be utilized when sales begin in the new West End Stadium for the 2021 season. Information about all 2020 ticket options – season tickets, multiple-game options, group tickets and individual-game tickets – is available at fccincinnati.com/tickets or by calling 513-977-5425 (KICK).
