RICHMOND, Va. – (Tuesday, January 7, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers are pleased to announce the re-signing of midfielder Luke Pavone, pending USL League One and USSF approval. 

“Luke returns for us after working hard this past year,” commented Darren Sawatzky, Kickers Sporting Director and Head Coach. “We are ready to see him battle for minutes with a good attacking group of players.”

Pavone made four appearances for the Kickers in his first season in 2019. Starting his collegiate career at the University of Massachusetts for two seasons, Pavone played his final three years at Buffalo State College. In 2018, Pavone signed his first professional contract with Hapoel Petach-Tikvah in Isreal.

“Once last season ended, I knew immediately that Richmond was where I wanted to be in 2020 and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to be back,” said Pavone. “I fell in love with the diverse culture of the city, the southern climate, and want to bring our beloved fans the Championship they deserve!”
