PRLog - June 7, 2014 - HOUSTON -- The Houston Hurricanes FC announced June 5th, the signing of Belize international player Evan Evimar Mariano that adds strength, experience and a player profile that further enhances the club and league as we march forward toward the TPSL's second season.
Evan Evimar Mariano
The player that can play midfield, winger or forward so will be utilised well by the Hurricanes coaching staff with Head Coach Brendan Keyes saying, "The team is very excited about bringing Evan to Houston Texas and he will definitely bring another level of play to our already strong team."
"I believe with Evan and three or four more quality players we are bringing in, we can challenge for the title this year. He brings the experience of playing at international level to the team, he has speed and he is a danger to any defenders when running at them." continued the Irishman, "I like his character, he is a pillar in his community back home and helps out with the kids whenever he can. We would ideally like Evan to stay with the Hurricanes for the whole season but it will be hard to hold on to him when the big teams see what he's got."
Speaking about the move, Evan said, "Making the move to the Houston Hurricanes is by far the perfect move for me and playing under Coach Keyes really means a lot to me as he knows the sport and he knows what he wants to do with the team."
"The coach sees me joining the Hurricanes as just putting the puzzle together and I will use what I know to help the team go forward. My experience playing for my country where I have 10 caps and played within the Gold Cup, provides proof that I am one of my coutries best players. Although I love my country, it's perhaps time for me to leave and show people my skills elsewhere." said the modest Belizean.
"I will do my best for the team because Coach Keyes will be pushing me as hard as he can. I whould also like to say thanks to him for letting this opportunity happen." rounded off Evan.
