The Eagles will have 21 returning players for the 2019 season who went 7-7-3 their previous 2018 season.

The Georgia Southern men’s soccer team have added four new players to their 2019 roster as they announced the signing of all four players Wednesday.

Of the four athletes, two are international- midfielder/forward Thomas Jackson from Crewe, England and midfielder Corey Irvine from Glasgow, Scotland. The other two additions are both from Florida- midfielder/forward Lawson Dooling and goalkeeper Maverick Boring.

Jackson will be a valuable asset to have on the offense as in his prior experience he represented the British Virgin Islands in CONCACAF U17 tournament in Suriname 2016.

The second signee from overseas is a transfer from Northeast Texas CC where he played 18 games as a sophomore in 2018 while scoring eight goals and logging three assists.

The third addition to the roster is found in a midfielder from Naples, Florida. Dooling impressed his senior season at Palmetto Ridge high school where he scored 26 goals and notched nine assists, leading his team to qualify for regionals for the second time in school history. The midfielder earned first-team All-County and Naples Daily News honors in 2018.

Final addition in this first 2019 signing class for soccer is goalkeeper Boring from Fleming Island, Florida. Boring spent two season playing with the Orlando City SC MLS Academy as well as being a member of Tim Howard School of Goalkeeping while in high school.

All four athletes will begin their careers in the Fall 2019 season, joining the 21 returning players from the previous 2018 season.
