Albuquerque, NM - New Mexico United is thrilled to announce the signing of midfielder Will Seymore ahead of the 2022 USL Championship season. Seymore has incredible experience in the USL Championship and Irish Premier Division, and is a proven winner. Seymore was also a crucial contributor in Sligo Rovers’ qualification for the UEFA Europa League in 2020.
“The way Will covers ground makes him a dynamic addition to our midfield group,” said New Mexico United Heach Coach/Technical Director Zach Prince. “His energy, coupled with his ability to make the opponent work with his range of passing is going to make him an exciting addition to our group.”
Seymore was born in Colorado Springs and spent his youth career with Colchester United and Cambridge United academies in England, and signed with Soham Town Rangers before playing college ball at Oregon State. As a four-year starter with the Beavers, he earned all-conference honors and was named to the TopDrawerSoccer top 100 freshman list.
After college, Seymore was drafted in the third round (56th overall) of the MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas, and played a few matches with Lane United before signing on with the USL Championship’s Vancouver Whitecaps 2. Across five seasons in the USL-C, with Vancouver, FC Cincinnati, and Reno 1868 FC, Seymore made 87 appearances, and an additional three in the US Open Cup. In that time, he had a passing accuracy rate of 83.97%, a duel success rate of 54.3%, a tackle success rate of 62.5%, made 59 interceptions, and 278 recoveries.
After his time in the USL Championship, Seymore made his way to Sligo Rover of the Irish Premier Division, where he has made 49 appearances across league and domestic cup fixtures, and helped lead the club to 2020 UEFA Europa League qualification. In 2021, he joined Finn Harps FC, scoring two goals in 33 matches.
