Sacramento Republic FC have agreed to a one-year USL contract with defender Josh Turnley for the 2018 season.
“Josh is a player that has impressed us these past two seasons as we followed his progress at LA,” said Republic FC Head Coach and Technical Director Paul Buckle. “His skills and tenacity as a player will be a welcome addition to our back line and complement the likes of Elliott and Carlos.”
Turnley joins Republic FC after playing the last two seasons with LA Galaxy II. The defender was the first pick of the third round (42nd overall) of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. Soon after, he signed a USL contract with Los Dos, making 37 appearances, including 34 starts in two seasons. He recorded four assists as a member of Los Dos.
The defender had a successful four-year collegiate career at Georgetown. He appeared in 67 matches, including 61 starts, as a Hoya. Turnley recorded six assists, including a career-high three in 2013. The Georgetown defense was strong with Turnley leading the way, ranking eighth in the nation for goals against average in 2014 and leading the nation in shutout percentage in 2013.
