BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union College added another Tennessee player as goalkeeper Kyle Applebee inked to play his collegiate soccer with the Bulldogs.

Applebee, a Murfreesboro native played for Blackman High School. He was also a member of the Nashville Metros club squad.

"Technically, he is very strong, and he has a great base to start working with at the college level,' Union head coach Tyler Brock said. ‘Tactically he is strong as well so I hope the keepers we already have here at Union are training in the off season."

Jonathan Shaw (Merseyside, England) played in 18 of Union's 19 matches in 2008. The sophomore posted a 1.06 goals-against average. He recorded 67 saves in 85 shots. Nathan Koebcke (Corinth, Ky.) and Max Sisson (Corbin, Ky.) also started matches during 2008.

"I think Kyle is coming to Union to shake some things up," Brock commented. "He is a quality keeper with a lot of ability and I am really excited to start working with him."

Union finished the 2008 season with a 10-5-4 record including a 9-0-2 home record. The Bulldogs finished sixth in the Appalachian Athletic Conference behind a 3-3-1 record before losing in the quarterfinals after a shootout.
