The Puerto Rico Islanders are very pleased to announce the return of stellar forward Nicholas Addlery. Addlery joined the Islanders in January 2009 making a great impression to the technical staff during pre-season and proving it with his excellent performance during that year’s USL season and CONCACAF Champions League. Addlery scored two goals against CD Marathon of Honduras to go through to the Champions League Semifinals. And scored two goals in the Semifinals’ first leg against Mexico’s Cruz Azul. Then he played on loan with Aguila in El Salvador, and tried out for Mexico’s Cruz Azul, but came back to Puerto Rico in 2010 looking for a Championship and got two; the Caribbean Championship and the USSF D-2 Championship.
In 2011 he re-signs with the Puerto Rico Islanders looking to repeat those titles and go even further in the CONCACAF Champions League. “Nick Addlery is a very important player for us. He is a strong forward with a vast experience and excellent definition. We are very excited to have him back for the 2011 NASL (North American Soccer League) season, the CFU (Caribbean Football Union) Championship and eventually the CONCACAF Champions League”, said Islanders President, Andrés Guillemard.
The Puerto Rico Islanders 2011 NASL season will begin on April 9 when they visit the Carolina Railhawks. The CFU Championship will initiate in Puerto Rico from April 12-14th when they will face the winner of Walking Boyz, Co of Surinam and Northern United All Stars of St. Lucia.
