TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa Roughnecks FC has announced the signing of midfielder Carlos Martinez and Jasson Ramos Carpio for the 2016 USL season.
Martinez spent the past two seasons with Sacramento Republic FC, and made 17 appearances for the team. A former member of the U.S. U17 National Team, Martinez has also previously played in Germany for FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt and Energie Cottbus.
“We saw Carlos this winter, and he is a good acquisition for us,” said Roughnecks Head Coach David Irving. “He is young but has a lot of experience, including at this level with Sacramento as well as in Germany and with the USA U-17 team.”

A native of Guatemala, Ramos Carpio joins the Roughnecks after a strong preseason which saw him score three goals in Tulsa’s first two preseason contests. The 20-year-old has been hampered by minor injuries since then, but is expected to be available for Tulsa’s final preseason exhibition this Saturday against FC Wichita.“Jasson is a very interesting one,” said Irving. “When we saw him in Florida, it was his first time ever in the United States. He is still getting acclimated, but he is very talented and will be fun to watch this season.”
