HARRISON, N.J. — Red Bull II signed left back Allen Yanes to a United Soccer League contract, the club announced Wednesday.
Yanes joins NYRB II after three seasons with Antigua Guatemala Fútbol Club.
Born in Orange County, Calif., the 20-year-old Yankes began with Antigua GFC in the 2015-16 season. During his tenure, Yanes tallied 63 starts, 73 appearances, 5,764 minutes and one goal.
He helped Antigua to three consecutive Apertura titles in Liga Nacional de Guatemala (the highest professional division in the country).
“Allen joins us with CONCACAF Champions League experience,” NYRB II head coach John Wolyniec said. “That being said, we believe Allen has a high ceiling and NYRB II will be another step along his development path. We look forward to his growth.”
Alongside domestic competitions, Yanes has represented the Guatemalan national team at the Under-17, U-20 and senior levels. Yanes started and played the full 90 minutes for the U-17s in seven matches, including a 3-1 win over Derrick Etienne, Jr.’s Haiti U-17 squad April 9, 2013. He was also on Guatemala U-20s squad that faced Michael Amir Murillo’s Panama team Jan. 21, 2015.
Yanes also competed in the CONCACAF Champions League tournament during the 2016-17 season. The left back started and played the full 90 of the final match of the group stage against Alianza FC. Yanes was a part of Antigua’s 18-man squad when the team faced the Red Bulls during CCL group stage.
