BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union College men's soccer head coach Tyler Brock has announced that Josh Arberry, a native of Somerset County, England, has signed his National Letter of Intent to join the Bulldog program in time for the start of 2013 preseason practices later this summer.
In his native country, Arberry prepped at the Wellsway School in Bristol, England, where he was the boy's soccer team captain. Arberry also played for Somerset County's squad, leading the team to the National Semi-Finals and a league runner-up finish.
"Josh is a quality player on the ball, and is going to give us some good size as well," said Brock. "When we got to see him in his showcase game, he scored right off a set piece and we noticed he has a very dangerous delivery.
"We are going to look at him at multiple positions and see where he is best suited for our program. We can play him in the midfield, outside mid, even center back. When he gets in during preseason we really be able to assess his ability and find a position for him to get settled into."
Josh, the son of Rich and Karina Arberry, plans to major in physical education at Union College.
The Bulldogs kick-off their 2013 season on Aug. 30, hosting Emmanuel (Ga.) as part of the 2013 Thomas Trammel Memorial Classic.
