The Orange County Blues announced two more players for the 2016 roster on Wednesday, as midfielder/defender Ryan Felix and forward Tyler Feeley were both re-signed.
Feeley, 18, completed his first season with the Blues, his first also as a pro. Scoring one goal in U.S. Open Cup play and adding an assist in league play in limited minutes, the Real Salt Lake-Arizona academy product was a player for the future and OC head coach Oliver Wyss will be looking to bring the youngster's progress along in more depth next season.
Felix also played his rookie season with the Blues in 2015, a shortened campaign because he joined the team midseason. He immediately became a regular contributor, as the Blues finished the season strong en route to their best ever finish. The 22-year-old Loyola Marymount product was versatile and showed he could contribute as he made a total of 15 appearances for the Blues across all competitions this year.
"We are thrilled to welcome Tyler and Ryan back to the OC Blues," said Wyss in a statement. "The coaching staff is excited to continue to help them develop as professional players and we expect them to contribute significantly in the 2016 season."
The confirmed returns of Feeley and Felix brings the Blues' announced roster for next season up to five, joining fellow returnees Christopher Santana and Nikola Ilich and newcomer Brandon Miller. We'll have more team news as we get it.
