1868 FC Signs Guy Abend

Posted: Updated:

Reno 1868 FC has announced the signing of midfielder Guy Abend to a one-year contract Thursday pending league and federation approval. Abend joins Reno from Louisville FC, who just won the 2017 USL Cup in October.


“Guy is a technical, holding midfielder,” Reno head coach Ian Russell said. “He will bring a physical presence to the game next season.


Abend, a native of Israel, was a regular starter with Louisville FC during the championship season in the midfield. He scored his first and only goal on Sept. 2 and provided a defensive presence all season long recording 30 clearances, 2 blocks and 39 interceptions in 2017.


“I’m very happy to join Reno next season,” Abend said. “I’m excited to be a part of this project and really looking forward to working with Ian, the staff and the lads. I can’t wait to get on the pitch at Greater Nevada Field and play in front of our fans. Let’s do work and make it one to remember.”
