The Swope Park Rangers announced on Monday that they have signed 24-year-old defender Liam Doyle.

“Liam is a strong center back that is very good with the ball at his feet,” Swope Park Rangers head coach Nikola Popovic said in a press release. “He’s a player with very good technique and can build play from the back. He has a good profile for what we’re looking for in a center back.”

Doyle is a 24-year-old center back. He made 27 starts and 28 appearances with the City Islanders in 2016. He is from the Isle of Man in the United Kingdom. He was originally drafted by DC United in 2016 but was not offered a contract.

“I’m excited to join such a great organization,” Doyle said in the press release. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity the club is giving me to further my career and I can’t wait to get started next season.”

Doyle becomes the ninth player on the Rangers’ 2017 roster, and the third added player this offseason.
