Brisbane-based Rochedale Rovers have announced a coup with the signing of former Brisbane Roar forward Jean Carlos Solorzano.
The confirmation of the Costa Rican’s arrival follows his club debut in Friday night’s Westfield FFA Cup Preliminary Round 7 defeat to Redlands United, where Solorzano assisted Rochedale’s opening goal.
Solorzano’s signing for the Flight Centre Premier League outfit follows just days after PlayStation® 4 National Premier Leagues side Olympic FC captured fellow Roar stalwart Shane Stefanutto.
Rochedale coach Scott MacNicol believes the former Costa Rica international will add invaluable know-how to his ambitious squad.
“(Jean Carlos) is looking forward to the challenge facing Rovers as we aim to cement our place in the Flight Centre Premier League top four,” MacNicol said.
“His experience at the top levels of the game will be a great benefit to our players, especially the young boys coming through the junior ranks at Rovers.”
Solorzano is one of a number of former Hyundai A-League players plying their trade in Queensland’s community football competitions, with the likes of Australia youth international Wayne Shroj turning out for Mareeba Bulls in Cairns.
