UNIONDALE, N.Y. – (Thursday, April 15, 2021) – The Long Island Rough Riders Men’s team is pleased to announce that Josh Levine will return to the club for the upcoming 2021 USL2 season.
Levine, a goalkeeper, spent four years at Penn State before transferring to Fordham as a graduate student. As a Rough Rider in 2019, Levine stepped up with the departure of two goalkeepers signing with USL Championship clubs prior to the season. He conceded just five goals in 10 matches as the Rough Riders had the second-best defense (14 goals allowed) in the Mid Atlantic Division.
‘We are delighted to bring Josh back for the 2021 season. He was one of our top players from a very talented 2019 team.” Rough Riders Head Coach Tom Bowen said. “Josh joins a great tradition of Rough Rider Goalkeepers from Tony Meola, Ryan Meara, and Tim Melia to more recently Dylan Castanheira and Danny Vitiello who are all making a career out of the game. I believe Josh has a similar future ahead of him.”
The Rough Riders open their 2021 USL2 campaign against NJ Copa FC on Saturday, May 22nd at 6:00 pm.
