Armada FC add former Colombia international, Rapids' leading scorer

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Armada will be starting play in the NASL during the 2015 season, and have begun constructing the roster that will take the pitch for their first ever campaign. On Tuesday, the club announced the latest addition to their ranks, forward Jaime Castrillon.

The 31-year old Castrillon spent the bulk of his career playing in his native Colombia, where he made 276 appearances for Independiente Medellin, scoring 53 times. He also made 29 appearances for the Colombian national team between 2004 and 2007, scoring five goals for his country.

Castrillon moved to MLS in 2012, playing for the Colorado Rapids for a pair of seasons. He led the club in scoring with eight goals during the 2012 season, but scored only once in eleven appearances during 2013 following knee surgery in the offseason.

Prior to signing Castrillon, Armada FC announced deals with goalkeeper Miguel Gallardo, defender Fabricio Ortiz, and midfielder Lucas Rodriguez.
