San Antonio FC have signed forward Shawn Chin and midfielder Sebastien Thuriere to their roster for the 2016 season, the team announced on Thursday.
Chin comes to San Antonio after spending two seasons with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the NASL, where he tallied three goals and eight assists in 53 matches. He also helped lead the Strikers to the NASL Championship game.
Prior to his time with the Strikers, Chin spent time with Minnesota United and FC Edmonton, both of the NASL.
“Shawn is an exciting player,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell. “He has good pace and good speed and he loves to get beyond defenders. We expect him to fit our system in several different positions across the front line this season, and we are looking forward to working with him. He is an exciting, dynamic attacking player.”
Thuriere spent the 2015 season season with the Charleston Battery of the USL, where he appeared in 21 matches.
“This will be an absolutely great experience to be a part of a club with so much behind it,” said Thuriere. “I’ve been playing in the USL for a few years, and to be starting off on this note with the great group of players, coaching staff and backing of Spurs Sports & Entertainment, gives this group a great chance to excel.”
