Ranjitsingh - Awarded All-Freshman Atlantic Sun Team

Five Bears Earn A-Sun Postseason Awards

MACON, Ga. – Five members of the Mercer men’s soccer team received Atlantic Sun postseason honors as announced on Monday morning by the league office after voting conducted by the nine conference head coaches.

Junior Josh Shutter was voted onto the first team, classmate Joey Heavner landed a spot on the second team and freshmen Ashani Samuels, Carl-Oscar Andersson and Greg Ranjitsingh were all named to the All-Freshman squad.

Mercer's five overall selections were tied for the second-most in the conference, trailing only FGCU who had seven players receive All-Conference recognition. Another sign of the program’s growth under head coach Brad Ruzzo, the Bears five All-Freshman selections over the past two seasons are the most of any team in the A-Sun Conference.

Stetson junior midfielder Jonathan Mendoza won the A-Sun Player of the Year while classmate Luis Ocejo won the A-Sun Defensive Player of the Year. FGCU forward Xavier Silva and head coach Bob Butehorn won the A-Sun Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively.

For Shutter, the selection marks his second A-Sun postseason award after earning a spot on the All-Conference second team last season. A 2011 Preseason All-Atlantic Sun Team selection, the Sinking Spring, Pa. native has appeared and started in 16 games for the Bears this season, setting career-highs in points (9) and goals (3). The 6-2 center back starred in Mercer’s 2-0 over Appalachian State on September 4, scoring the game-winning goal on a penalty kick and assisting on the second goal.

For Heavner, the All-Conference second team honor is his second A-Sun postseason award in as many days, as he was also named to the inaugural Men’s Soccer Academic All-Conference team. The Landisville, Pa. native is tied for second on the squad with nine points on one goal and seven assists. Heavner currently ranks tied for first in the A-Sun and 22nd in the nation with seven assists and scored his lone goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Belmont on October 30.

Samuels, Andersson and Ranjitsingh were all selected to the All-Freshman team, giving the Orange and Black multiple selections on the All-Rookie team in back-to-back seasons.

Samuels has played in 15 games, including 13 starts, and has four points on two goals this season. Andersson has appeared and started in all 18 games this season for Mercer and tallied seven points on one goal and five assists. Ranjitsingh has played every minute in goal this season for the Bears and finished tied for first in the A-Sun with seven shutouts and second in the league with a 1.07 goals against average.

Mercer returns to the field on Wednesday evening when it takes on Lipscomb in the first round of the Atlantic Sun Championship. Game time is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Summers-Taylor Stadium on the campus of East Tennessee State University.

His highlight reel naturally shows a lot of positives.  I would love to watch him in a few games to see these things live.  From the video he seem to possess great positional awareness, fearlessness when rushing out to collect a ball, strong punch out, doesn't parry ball back into dangerous positions, strong reflexes and agility.  He certainly could be one to compete for the spot on eligible national teams.

Ranjitsingh signs with Louisville City FC

Greg Ranjitsingh signs with Louisville City FC.
Lousivillecityfc.com


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (March 26th, 2015)­­ — Louisville City FC, the new professional soccer team that will kick off its inaugural season campaign on March 28th at Louisville Slugger Field, announced three more acquisitions to the club. Goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh, English forward, Cameron Lancaster and Serbian forward Ilija Ilic.

Lancaster started his career in the Tottenham Hotspur Academy and made his debut for the English Premier League team under former Spurs head coach, Harry Redknapp. In 2014 the 6-foot striker went on-loan to Stevenage where he connected on a wonder goal from 40-yards out. Lancaster went on to St. Albans City for another loan stint. He made for appearances and scored twice for the Saints.

While on trial with Louisville City FC, the 22-year-old wasted no time displaying his talents. In the club’s first friendly he broke a 2-2 draw in the 89th minute with a superb strike to give his team the 3-2 win over Indiana University.

“We invited Cameron to come on trial with us last month,” head coach James O’Connor said. “It was obvious within the first few days of training that he had great potential. He has the ability to score a lot of goals for us this season.”

Ilic was a former teammate of Louisville City midfielder Niall McCabe at Young Harris College. Ilic left Young Harris holding the school record for most points in a season. In 2014 he was voted the NCAA Division 2 Player of the Year, finishing second in all of NCAA Division II in goals scored with 27.

The 6-foot-2 Belgrade, Serbia native had also been on trial with the club and has been able to show how his powerful right boot can help Louisville City. The 23-year-old scored a goal and was responsible for another in LCFC’s 5-0 win over Lindsey-Wilson.

“Ilija is another player that we have been fortunate to sign,” O’Connor said. “He has a strong right foot that is going to lead to many goals for us. He was constantly filling the stat sheet at Young Harris, and we now that we have seen what he can do first hand, we are thrilled to have him on board.”

Ranjitsingh is a 22-year-old from Pickering, Ontario. In his four years as the starting goalkeeper at Mercer University, Ranjitsingh led the conference in many statistical categories including save percentage and average goals allowed. He finished his collegiate career as one of the top keepers in the country. In one preseason game with Louisville, Ranjitsingh registered a clean sheet in a 5-0 win over Lindsey-Wilson.

“We invited Greg to come on-loan to us a few weeks ago,” O’Connor said. “During his time with us he proved that he has the skills to be a quality goalkeeper. Obviously we are excited to have gotten Greg here and thrilled to have him here in Louisville.”

Lancaster, Ilic, Ranjitsingh and the rest of the Louisville City FC squad continue their preparation for the club’s inaugural season. Season tickets are still available and can be purchased by visiting LouisvilleCityFC.com or by calling 502-384-8799. Ticket packages include 15 matches – 14 USL PRO regular season home games and one additional fixture (friendlies, Open Cup matches, etc.).

The full schedule is available online at LousivilleCityFC.com/schedule.

Louisville City FC is a professional soccer team founded in 2014 and will begin its first season in USL in March, 2015. The United Soccer League was founded in 2010 and has expanded to 24 teams for the 2015 season. Louisville City FC will play all home matches at Louisville Slugger Field in downtown Louisville.

Man of the Match: SIUE vs Louisville City FC
« Reply #10 on: April 09, 2015, 01:55:40 PM »
SIUE could have converted on a few more chances if not for the goal keeping of Greg Ranjitsingh. The first year pro out of Mercer was called upon to make several saves throughout the match and he did not disappoint.

As early as the 11th minute of the contest, Ranjitsingh, making his first start since the friendly versus Lindsey-Wilson, stood tall as the Cougars nearly turned a costly Louisville City turnover into the games opening goal.

The Louisville City FC keeper was forced to make another save in the 18th minute, but it was near the end of the first half that he was really tested. Ranjitsingh did just enough to get a glove on it and allow his defender, Conor Shanosky, to get the ball out of danger.

In an effort to get the game in, halftime was cut short and the players quickly returned to the pitch for the second half. Ranjitsingh was immediately tested again and made the save of the game in the 53rd minute. The 22-year-old was forced to reach all the way to his right to corral the ball and maintain the clean sheet.

In goalies, Louisville City has pair of keepers
By Jonathan Lintner (The Courier-Journal)


Already one of the best defensive teams in the United Soccer Leagues, Louisville City FC flexed its muscle in Wednesday's 1-0 U.S. Open Cup win over Lansing United.

Backup keeper Greg Ranjitsingh, a four-year standout at Mercer University, posted his second clean sheet in as many appearances for the first-year franchise, the other coming during a preseason game against Lindsey Wilson College.

Though Ranjitsingh hasn't appeared in a regular-season USL match -- and likely won't again when Louisville City FC plays at 8:30 p.m. Sunday against rival Saint Louis FC -- he's added depth to a unit with four shutouts in eight games with starter Scott Goodwin between the posts.

"Greg is someone who we really like," said coach James O'Connor. "He works really hard and he's got tremendous potential. We're really excited about Greg as a prospect. It's great that we have such good keepers in Greg and Scott. And Greg will definitely push Scott and he can learn a lot from Scott because Scott's and excellent keeper."

Goodwin opened the season with a shutout of Saint Louis back on March 28. The clubs, in addition to Sunday's game on the road, play again May 30 at Louisville Slugger Field, continuing a rivalry dubbed "The King's Cup."

While Louisville (4-1-3) has the USL's best goal differential -- 14 scored to just four allowed -- O'Connor's team is still seeking its first win, having lost once and drawn in two other matches.

Saint Louis (3-3-1) enters the week having dropped a 2-1 decision to Toronto FC II in its last USL outing.

LOUISVILLE CITY FC vs ORLANDO CITY FC

GREG RANJITSINGH (LOUISVILLE CITY FC)

Record Crowd Sees Louisville City Take Down Orlando City 3-1

Louisville, KY (August 25, 2015) — An historic night at Louisville Slugger Field was made even more special with the record crowd of 9,434 fans saw the home side come away with a 3-1 victory of Major League Soccer’s Orlando City SC.

Lou City threatened early with some great chances to draw first blood. Captain Matthew Fondy challenged the Orlando backline all night and got his first real chance coming in the in the 34th minute. Fondy would find the ball and get off a shot to the left of the keeper, only to be corralled then saved by Orlando’s Earl Edwards.

Just a minute later, Fondy would weave through three defenders to get off a shot on a tough angle. The ball rifled past Edwards, finding the back of the net and sent the crowd into a frenzy.

That would be all the scoring the first half would see, but the second half would tell a different story. Many new faces entered the field for the final 45 minutes, including Greg Ranjitsingh who made his Slugger Field debut.

Orlando would have a great chance to level things in the 47th minute brushing by multiple Lou City defenders only to find his shot go wide of the post and out for a goal kick.

Despite the visitors pushing for an equalizer, Juan Guzman would double the Louisville lead in the 50th minute. The midfielder would pressure a bad handle by Orlando’s backline, get a touch on the ball, and fire a shot  for Lou City’s second goal on the night.

Orlando would come right back in the 66th minute with a goal of their own by Danny Mwanga, who was able to cross through two defenders and get off a solid shot beating Ranjitsingh to the left, bringing the score to 2-1.

Orlando would come close to equalizing in the 71st minute when a strong cross by the Lions would be tipped out by Ranjitsingh only to have another shot come right back into the keeper’s hands then cleared away to end the threat.

Louisville’s final goal of the night would come from Charlie Adams in the 78th minute. Louisville benefited from a foul and a quick restart. Charlie Adams attempted to maneuver around a defender, only to see Edwards meet him near the six-yard-box. The two nearly collided, forcing Edwards to spill the ball  and allowing Adams to deliver the finishing blow.

As the final whistle blew, Louisville City would defeat the Orlando 3-1.

Fans could tell this would be a special night as the crowd began to fill the stands, Louisville Mayor Greg Fisher, former USL President Tim Holt, Brek Shea, and dozens of other MLS talents made it a star-studded affair.

After an incredible showing by the team in their 3-1 victory over Orlando, this was both a record setting attendance night and monumental victory for the club. Louisville City will be back in USL play this Saturday night at home versus the Pittsburgh Riverhounds as the race for playoff positioning is in full swing, be sure you get your tickets at www.louisvillecityfc.com/tickets.

could he possibly be better than where he plays ?  What is the most difficult position to break in on any pro level team regardless of location ?

ans: For a West Indian, especially TTian, that would be 'ANY' position, including coach. That is why tallest accomplishment is so amazing and Dwight, KJ, Stern and Latas just as amazing..but the Million goalies trying in each country's local pro leagues, he might not even be able to break in a last place team in the Italian serie Z amateur division..so good he can get work and keep up his craft, need to be evaluated by our coaching staff very soon doh.

Our current keepers are well over 30, will be closer to 40 by Russia 2018. We need to look at Greg and others. Greg is brave, controls his box and distributes the ball well. I would like to see him hold on to more balls, he parries well but too often

When I asked that question, it wasn't to imply he is better, it was to ask, if he is national material, he should be aiming for a higher league, imo if he can make it there of course..
