The 25-year-old left-back arrives on a free transfer for the Revolution in a position that needs reinforcement as the business end of the season approaches.
New England Revolution announced on Thursday their signing of Jamaican international O’Brian Woodbine on a free transfer.
The left-back has 14 caps for Jamaica and even featured against the USMNT for the Reggae Boyz in a 2-1 loss in June.
“O’Brian has both professional and international experience and we’re expecting him to come in, help push our team and provide depth the last few months of the season,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns told the club’s official website.
The 25-year-old will provide some much needed cover for incumbent left-back Chris Tierney. The club legend is a nail-on starter for the side but, with second-string left-back Tyler Polak currently out on loan to Rochester Rhinos of USL Pro, Tierney could do with the cover in case of fatigue or injury.
Outside of his native Jamaica, Woodbine has also spent time in the USL Pro with Charleston Battery and Finland with Vaasan Palloseura and Finnish giants Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi – winning the respective divisions’ league title for every side bar Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi.
Woodbine should be available for selection at the weekend for the Revs’ divisional matchup against Toronto FC.
