SOCKERS SIGN HIGH-SCORING FREE AGENT CHRISTIAN GUITERREZ
TALENTED MIDFIELDER FROM EL PASO WILL BOLSTER THE SOCKERS POTENT OFFENSE
SAN DIEGO (May 7, 2018) – The 14-time champion San Diego Sockers announced today the signing of high-scoring midfielder Christian Gutierrez to bolster the offense for the 2018-19 season. The transaction, which is pending visa approval, was made during the Major Arena Soccer League’s Free Agency signing period which ends May 15. Per league and team policies, details of the agreement were not released.
Gutierrez comes to San Diego after three highly-productive seasons compiling 146 points in 62 career games with El Paso (2017-18) and Atletico Baja (2016-17 & 2015-16). He was named to the 2017-18 All-MASL Third Team.
Sockers General Manager Sean Bowers stated, “Being able to add a quality player and person to our roster will only benefit us next year in a league that continues to improve season-to-season. You can no longer remain static, you must look to acquire good talent and we did that with this signing.”
The Sockers will begin their 24-game 2018-19 campaign in December with 12 home matches being played at Valley View Casino Center.
