Battery sign forward, midfielder for 2010 season

The Charleston Battery has just announced the signing of two new players to the team's 2010 USL season.

The new additions are forward Amaury Nunes and midfielder Alioune Gueye. Nunes is a native of Rio de Janeiro Brazil and comes to the Battery from the Charlotte Eagles where he scored nine goals in 12 games in 2009. Gueye is a native of Senegal and played for the Cleveland City Stars last year.

Battery head coach Mike Anhaeuser had this to say about his new players:

“Alioune is a central midfield player that we saw last year with Cleveland. He is a player that can stop teams from playing while bringing a quality and strength to the midfield to help the team win. He will add to our depth in the center midfield position and we look forward to him having a successful season in 2010.”

“Amaury is a natural goal-scorer who I first came in contact with while he was at Fresno in the PDL. He had a successful season after coming back from injury with Charlotte last season and we know he will do the same in Charleston. He has the ability to score goals and is always a threat when he is on the field. We are very pleased to have Amaury join the Battery attack in 2010.”
