TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa Roughnecks FC has announced the re-signing of forward Kidd Nwabueze for the upcoming USL season.

“We are excited to have Kidd back for a second season with our team,” said Roughnecks Coach David Irving. “His pace and athleticism give him elements that a lot of players don’t have. 2016 will be a key season for him as he is capable of becoming a top professional striker.”

Nwabueze recorded five goals in his rookie season for the Roughnecks, as he was used predominantly off the bench in the club’s inaugural season. Only four of his 24 appearances in the regular season were starts, as he often provided an attacking spark with his speed for the club.

The 23-year-old Nigerian had previously starred in the PDL for LA Misioneros FC, which he helped reach the PDL Playoffs for only the second time in its history in 2014.
