North Texas SC announces three foreign signings

North Texas SC opens training camp on February 10th and today announced three signings for their 2020 roster; Juan Manuel Alvarez, Pedro “Cuadrado” Conceição Alves and Alisson dos Santos Correa.

According to FCD, Juan Alvarez is on a one year loan from CF Monterrey while Alves and Correa have signed one-year deals with NTXSC with options for 2021.

Alvarez played in the 2015 Dallas Cup SuperGroup with Monterrey winning Group C and knocking off River Plate 1-0 in the Semi-Final before falling to Coritiba 3-1 in the Final.

“We are extremely excited to be able to announce these new signings,” North Texas SC General Manager Matt Denny said. “All three of these young international players are going to come in and make an impact. We have high projections for these guys and they’re hungry to prove themselves. Coming off a championship year we are definitely not looking to take our foot off the gas. We are looking forward to a great season and I am excited for the fans to get to know these players.”

  1. I’m interested to see how these guys turn out. It seems they are a bit older than some of the prospects that were brought in for NTSC last year, which isn’t necessarily good or bad.
