The Rochester Rhinos have signed defender Yohance Marshall to a contract the club announced on Tuesday. Marshall is a 25-year old defender from Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. After appearing in two matches for the Los Angles Galaxy in 2009 and 2010, Marshall was loaned to the Austin Aztex where he appeared in 24 matches in 2010. He has also appeared in four matches for the T&T national team.
“We’re excited to have Yohance joining our team because he’s an experienced defender. We’ve had some injuries in the back recently. That has given some other guys on our roster a chance to get some experience for us over the past couple of weeks and create some depth. Signing Yohance is only going to add to that depth.” Rhinos coach Bob Lilley said.
