Jonathan Steele – Image From Puerto Rico Islanders Website

The Ironmen continued to add top-flight talent to the roster yesterday when they announced the signing of reigning USL-1 MVP Jonathan Steele.

The 22-year-old midfielder earned MVP honors after tallying two goals and 11 assists during the 2008 regular season while playing for the Puerto Rico Islanders. Steele helped lead the Islanders to the USL-1 championship game and a berth in the CONCACAF Champions League.

Steele’s indoor career has included stints with the Kansas City Comets, Baltimore Blast and Philadelphia Kixx. He notched seven goals and six assists in 17 appearances for the Kixx last season.

Steele has also been capped for his play with the U-19 Northern Ireland National Team.

We here at the Local Fe26 are excited about the move. Steele is the third player to be signed this off season who will likely make an immediate impact during the upcoming campaign. The Ironmen signed former MISL MVP Aduato Neto and attack-minded midfielder Lucio Gonzaga earlier this month. The combination of the three players should help the Irons formulate a very potent attack.
