Miami FC signs Avery John to shore up defense

Miami FC announced the signing Thursday of defender Avery John, the Trinidad and Tobago international who spent the last three years playing for the New England Revolution of MLS. He was also a central part of the Trinidad and Tobago team which earned international respect after holding Sweden to a 0-0 draw in the 2006 World Cup.

After a decorated college career at the American University in Washington D.C. the 32-year-old Point-Fortin native began his professional career in 1999 playing for the Boston Bulldogs, formerly of the American A-League (now known as USL-1) under head coach Steve Nicol, who coincidently later went on to be Avery's head coach with the New England Revolution.

"I've played with a couple of teams in the USL-1 and I am aware of the level of talent that exists in the league," Avery said via a phone call. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity to play in Miami and contribute as soon as possible. This is all about winning a championship for me."
