ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 25, 2017) — The Tampa Bay Rowdies have acquired goalkeeper Matias Reynares on a short-term loan from North Carolina FC, the club announced prior to Saturday’s season opener.
Reynares arrived in Tampa Bay earlier this week and is available for selection against Orlando City B.
The Rowdies took Reynares on loan due to a neck injury which renders Matt Pickens unavailable for selection tonight.
Reynares, 18, signed with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers last season but did not make any official appearances for the first team. He played several games for the Strikers U-23 team. He was called into training camp with the United States U-19 national team last October.
