San Antonio FC has signed Greg Cochrane for the upcoming 2017 season, the team announced on Monday.
“We are pleased to have Greg return for the 2017 season,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell. “He was a consistent performer in multiple positions for us last season, and he will bring competitiveness to our squad on a daily basis. We look forward to Greg continuing to improve and help make us better in 2017.”
Cochrane played in all 30 matches for SAFC during the 2016 season, placing second on the team with three assists and earned USL Team of the Week Honors after his game against OKC Energy FC.
The signing is huge for San Antonio as Cochrane’s defense was one of the main reasons SAFC came within one game of a playoff berth in their inaugural season.
“I’m very excited to be rejoining San Antonio FC,” said Cochrane via a press release. “This is a top class organization with huge ambition. We made great strides last year, and I am excited to continue to push the club and city to new heights. The fan support, coaching staff and front office who work behind the scenes are all first class, and I can’t wait for the season to start.”
San Antonio FC will open their second season in the Alamo City in March.
