Spanish Midfielder ‘Yuma’ Jumps Aboard El Paso Locomotive FC

El Paso Locomotive FC has signed Spanish midfielder, Javier Monsalvez Carazo, more frequently known as “Yuma.”

Mark Lowry has been actively recruiting and building a roster that plays to the strengths of his style and that of his players.

“I am incredibly happy to be bringing Yuma here to El Paso. He is a player of tremendous ability and character. Not only does he possess the intelligence and technical ability to control the game from the middle, but arguably his greatest characteristic is his tenacity and desire to win. He is a ferocious competitor, a leader on the field and I know he will feel at home here in the El Paso community. I want to thank Jacksonville Armada for helping with this process, and I cannot wait to reunite with Yuma in January,” said Lowry.

Born in Madrid, Yuma began his youth career with Rayo Vallecano and moved through the ranks making his senior debut with the club in 2005. Playing the majority of his professional career in Spain, he moved to the United States in 2016 to play for Rayo OKC and then in 2017 he made his debut with Puerto Rico FC.

In 2018, Yuma joined Jacksonville Armada the former club of El Paso Locomotive FC Head Coach, Mark Lowry. Yuma will be the third player from Jacksonville on the Locomotive roster, joining Derek Gebhard and Joshua Castellanos who signed earlier this year.

El Paso Locomotive FC has officially signed nine players and will be making more announcements in the coming weeks.
