(Ewing, NJ) - The region's newest pre-professional soccer club announced today that their inaugural men's signing is Hightstown native and prospective Haitian youth international Christopher Coridon. Real Central NJ Soccer's men's team will play USL League Two beginning in May 2021. Last week USL2 saw 16 former players chosen in the first round of the Major League Soccer draft out of 27 total. The signing is pending league approval.

Christopher “Topher” Coridon joins RCNJ

The 22-year-old Haitian American was named among the 50 eligible players for the Haitian U23 Men's National Team for postponed Olympic qualifying last year. Coridon will also have the opportunity to represent Haiti in the Futsal World Cup qualifying in Guatemala later this year.

“I've played soccer from a very young age and I love it,” says Coridon. “I'm from Haiti, and soccer is all over Haiti so my family got me into it very young. My ultimate goal is to have a great year with Real Central NJ and use it as a springboard to sign a professional contract. "

“ Christopher is going to provide us experience and composure in the back, ”says Head Coach Patrick Snyder." I've seen him and his brother playing locally since they were youngsters and it's exciting to get to coach Christopher. "

While in college he played in the summer for Hershey FC in the NPSL. Last summer Coridon intended to play for RCNJ's rival West Chester United for the canceled USL League Two season. The formation of a new club close to his home and the ability to potentially play in front of a lot of friends and family made the move to Real Central NJ appealing.

“Topher's experience, attitude, and ability make him a standout signing for us,” said men's General Manager Ira Jersey, referring to Christopher's nickname which distinguishes him from twin brother Christian. "It's exciting to have a local player continue to fight for his dream with us."

“I'm looking forward to being with a club for its first year,” Coridon exclaimed. "We'll be ready to fight and show people what we are about!"

Real Central NJ Soccer's men's season kicks off May 2021 at TCNJ's Lion's Stadium in Ewing. Season tickets are on sale now and individual match tickets will be available in February.
