RICHMOND, Va. – (Monday, January 20, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers have signed midfielder Gianluca Cuomo for the 2020 season, pending USL League One and USSF approval.
“We are looking forward to having Gianluca in our midfield,” said Kickers Sporting Director and Head Coach Darren Sawatzky. “He adds a different type of player to an already great core of players. His experience and approach will compliment our group and we are glad he is coming aboard.”
A native of Rochester, NY, Cuomo made 15 appearances in one season at Warner University in the Sun Conference. He was named to the All-Conference Second team in 2015. Cuomo went on to play two seasons with the Rochester River Dogz, where he was honored on the 2016 NPSL First Team All Supporters XI. Making a move to the USL Championship in 2018, Cuomo joined San Antonio FC for the season after a successful trial with the club. Cuomo went overseas in 2019 to play with Mosta Football Club in Malta.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent such a historic club and city,” commented Cuomo. “Growing up in Rochester New York I remember going many times to watch the Richmond Kickers play the Rochester Rhinos as a youth in the old A-League which is now the USL. I’m very excited to be a part of the organization and get to know the people of Richmond.”
