GENERIC USER - Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Two new players have joined the ranks of Americans who currently ply their trade in Norway.
Jonathan Borrajo has signed with 2. Division club Ham-Kam while Robbie Tice has joined Bodo/Glimt II, the youth team of 1. Division club Bodo/Glimt.
Borrajo previously trialed at Swedish Superettan club Ljungskile and English League One club Walsall but was not offered a contract at either destination.
The 23 year old defender hails from Clifton, New Jersey and played his college soccer at George Mason University.
Ham-Kam were relegated last season from the 1. Division but currently sit first in their respective 2. Division group.
Borrajo featured in Saturday's 1-2 loss to Harstad.
Robbie Tice was born in British Columbia but also holds an American and British passport.
Tice last played for Nantwich Town of the English Northern Premier League and also spent extensive time training with League Two club Crewe Alexandra.
The 20 year old attacking midfielder underwent an unsuccessful trial with Norwegian 1. Division club Ranheim before settling in with Bodo/Glimt II where he finally has received international clearance to play for the team.
His contract with the club expires at the end of this season.
