Orange County SC announced on Friday they have signed defender Noah Powder for the 2018 USL season.

Powder, 19, joins OCSC after beginning his professional career with the New York Red Bulls II, after coming out of the MLS team’s academy. Playing for NYRBII the last two years, he helped them win the Shield-USL Cup double in 2016. All told, he’s made 30 appearances for the team in USL play, tallying three goals.

“Noah is an exciting young player with a bright future. He already has quite a bit of experience in the league despite being 19,” said Orange County SC head coach Braeden Cloutier in a statement. “I’m looking forward to working with him and helping him continue his development.”

Powder is a Trinidad & Tobago youth international, having captained the T&T U-17s and currently eligible to play for the U-20 side. The New Jersey native is eligible for T&T through his father.

Powder’s signing brings Orange County’s announced roster up to 13 players, with the season opener two weeks away, against Phoenix Rising FC on March 17.
