Memphis, Tenn – Memphis 901 FC announced on Monday the club has signed Jackson Brady to a 25-day contract, pending league approval.
A native of Christchurch, New Zealand, Brady was selected as a member of the New Zealand U-23 men’s national team this summer. The defender made three starts to help New Zealand win the Pacific Games in prep for the Olympics.
“We are pleased that Jackson has joined us,” Assistant Sporting Director Caleb Patterson-Sewell said. “He has a great pedigree coming up through the New Zealand national team ranks. He is a very talented defender and will give us immediate depth at the full back position.”
Brady appeared in 16 matches as a freshman at the University of Memphis before transferring to Cal Poly, where he started in 16 games and tallied three assists in his senior season in 2021.
Memphis 901 FC will travel to face Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Saturday, August 13 at 6 p.m. CT.
