New York Red Bulls II have signed Red Bulls Academy product Noah Powder to a USL contract. Powder’s registration is complete and he will be available for selection this Saturday, when NYRB II hosts the Charlotte Independence at Montclair State University.
“It’s great to have Noah back in the mix,” said NYRB II Head Coach John Wolyniec. “We’re excited to have him with the team. Noah’s been a part of the academy and played with us last year, so we feel really good about having him back and hopefully I can help him get to the next level.”
Powder, a native of Maplewood, N.J., featured heavily for NYRB II in 2016 as an amateur, playing a total of 1261 minutes across 20 matches, while scoring two goals for the USL side en route to a USL Cup title.
Powder has also appeared for Trinidad and Tobago’s U-20 Men’s National Team. With Trinidad & Tobago, he participated in the 2015 CONCACAF U-17 Championships in Honduras in which he started all five matches and scored two goals.
In the 2015-16 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season, Powder played 12 games, including 10 starts, for the Red Bulls U-18s and scored two goals.
