It appears the New England Revolution have started shaping their roster for the 2020 season, with homegrown midfielder Zachary Herivaux announcing his departure on social media earlier today.
For the past 9 years of my life I was able to represent the club I grew up supporting. It’s been a roller coaster of a ride filled with many memories and experiences. I’m excited and ready for the next chapter. Thank… https://t.co/rqTEhSrwFv— Zachary Herivaux (@ZHerivaux100) October 30, 2019
Herivaux found most of his success away from the Revolution, with successful loan stints in the USL and internationally with Haiti. His best Revs highlight came in 2016, when he clinched Open Cup hero status with an extra time winner against the Carolina Railhawks in the fourth round.
Overall Herivaux posted just 10 appearances and two starts in MLS, registering about 200 minutes in his MLS career. He joined up with former Revs coaches Jay Heaps and Tom Soehn with Birmingham Legion on loan this year in USL, registering over 20 apperances and we’ll have to see if that successful spell earns him a full time spot there next season.
Herivaux was highly touted and signed as a homegrown in 2015 forgoing a collegiate career with Providence. Herivaux wore #21 in honor of his friend and mentor Shalrie Joseph but never saw consistent playing time at the MLS level. Herivaux is the first homegrown player to leave the Revolution.
With the departure of Kelyn Rowe earlier this year it was possible that Herivaux could have occupied that utility role off the bench thanks to his versatility in midfield and centerback where he featured for Haiti’s youth teams but it wasn’t meant to be. The Brookline, Mass., native holds tri-citizenship with the US, Haiti, and Japan.
We wish Zachary the best as he continues his soccer career outside New England.
