Earlier today the New England Revolution announced that rookie Justin Rennicks was loaned to North Carolina FC.
Rennicks became the sixth homegrown player to be signed in Revs history. During his time in the Revolution academy, Rennicks racked up a total of 38 goals and 25 assists.
With only three appearances for the Revs during the regular season, Rennicks has made the best of his opportunities he has been given. Especially in the United States campaign in the Under 20 World Cup, where Rennicks was able to score the game winning goal for the US U-20 squad in their Round of 16 match against France.
Rennicks was also able to shine in the Revolution’s US Open Cup match against Orlando City S.C. where he scored the Revs loan goal after an amazing header. Although the Revs lost this matchup and were eliminated from the tournament, it gave fans the chance to see what Rennicks could provide the club.
With the move to North Carolina F.C., Rennicks will now have the chance to grow and develop as a player and have the chance to get some valuable minutes. Rennicks joins a growing list of loaned players, with Brian Wright and Zachary Herivaux getting significant action with Tom Soehn and Jay Heaps with Birmingham Legion and Issac Angking and Nicolas Firmino have been available off the bench for Hartford Athletic but have yet to play any USL minutes.
