El Paso Locomotive FC Signs Colombian Defender Bryam Rebellon

On Friday, officials with El Paso Locomotive FC announced the signing of Colombian right back, Bryam Rebellon to the first-year squad.

Rebellon played his youth and early days of his professional career in Argentina and his home country of Colombia.

Playing with Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia’s top division and then spending time with Club Atletico Sarmiento in Argentina led Rebellon to the United States where he joined LA Galaxy II in 2016, where he appeared 24 times and netted two goals.

In 2017, Rebellon joined Jacksonville Armada (21 appearances), the former club of El Paso Locomotive Head Coach, Mark Lowry and teammates, Derek Gebhard, Joshua Castellanos and Yuma.

After a year stint in Jacksonville, Rebellon joined Swope Park Rangers of the USL Championship for the 2018 season and appeared in 26 matches.

“Bryam is another very intelligent footballer and an incredible athlete who possesses great technique” said Lowry. “He can play various positions, but over the past couple of years has really made the right back spot his home.”

“What really sets Bryam apart though, is his character and work ethic. A phenomenal worker who dedicates his life to being the best he can be on the field. I am looking forward to having another high-quality personality in our locker room,” continued Lowry.

El Paso Locomotive FC plays their first match in their inaugural 2019 season on March 9th, against OKC Energy FC at Southwest University Park at 7:30 PM.

Fans are encouraged to sign up for the individual match tickets waiting list on the EP Locomotive FC website.

El Paso Locomotive FC Receives Attacker Edson Partida, On Loan from Toluca

El Paso Locomotive FC receives midfielder Edson Partida on loan from Deportivo Toluca F.C., who play in Liga MX and who have won the Mexican Primera Division 10 times (third most winningest club in Liga MX).

Partida also has experience on the U-20 side with Toluca; in Third Division with Buscando un Campeón and Cocula FC. He has appeared in matches with Chiapas U-17 side as well.

The 21-year-old Partida brings a youthful edge to the Locomotive roster with solid professional experience already under his belt in the top echelon of professional Mexican soccer.

“Partida is a young, hungry player, who for me, is a very exciting addition. He is a natural left winger, loves to run at defenders and has a toughness and determination about him that is very characteristic of Liga MX players,” said Head Coach Mark Lowry. “He is eager to learn and develop, and I know we can provide him the platform to grow on and off the field.”

The addition of Partida to the Locomotive roster for the 2019 season is another example of EP Locomotive’s opportunity to work with top tier clubs from around the world.

“We are getting attention from Liga MX’s teams who trust us to develop their talent. This is a massive step in our development as a club,” said Andrew Forrest General Manager, Business Operations.

The team that EP Locomotive FC Head Coach, Mark Lowry has been putting together for the inaugural season is taking shape with training camp and report dates for players set for the middle of January.

Partida is the 12th player announced, with more to follow in the coming weeks.

Locomotive FC Signs El Pasoan Louis “Chapa” Herrera

On Tuesday, the El Paso Locomotive FC announced the signing of El Pasoan, Louis “Chapa” Herrera. Herrera piqued the interest of the Locomotive coaching staff during the 2018 Alianza de Futbol tournament in El Paso, where he competed with an all-star team comprised of former professionals and collegiate players.

“We saw him play at the Alianza tournament in September, where I think he ran 5,000 miles and didn’t give the ball away once all weekend,” said head coach Mark Lowry. “We invited him to tryouts where he performed well and once again showed his quality and potential.”

After a successful two days at the December 1 and 2 open tryouts, Herrera received a spot to attend the invitational tryout on December 8 and 9 where he continued to impress the staff.

A few weeks after the invitational tryout, Herrera came to the El Paso Locomotive offices with his family and was offered a contract for the inaugural 2019 season.

Lowry said, “In my years of doing this, I can honestly say it was one of my proudest moments sitting with Louis and his family while he signed forms to become a full-time professional soccer player.”

“At 22, he has incredible room for growth and the opportunity to change the lives of him and his family. This is what dreams are made of. Last week he was working construction, today he signed a professional contract,” said Lowry. “I am honored to be part of this journey with Louis and everyone else in El Paso who aspires to be something special”

Herrera is the second El Pasoan on the Locomotive roster, joining 2011 number one overall MLS SuperDraft pick, Omar Salgado.

When El Paso Locomotive takes the field on March 9, fans will be blown away by the high-level of play in the USL Championship.

General Manager, Business Operations Andrew Forrest said, “The fact that another local player has earned his way onto the first team and can compete at this level is encouraging and a great sign of the high-level of talent in El Paso.”
