Revs add “Beckham” on free transfer

At least that’s what one Jamaican sportswriter took to calling Jamaican international fullback O’Brian Woodbine thanks to his spot kick prowess with Reno FC.

That’s Reno FC of the Western Confederation Super League, the second tier of Jamaica’s soccer pyramid, mind you. Although Woodbine was the Jamaican national team’s starting left back over their last three Hexagonal matches so he’s got that going for him.  And from the highlight reel above of his stint with VPS in the Finnish Veikkausliiga he looks like a decent tackler blessed with a bit of pace and up to the physical rigors of playing on some atrocious pitches; although to be fair VPS is a mid-table club in a league ranked 33rd on UEFA Coefficient (32nd? You guessed it, the Azerbaijan Premier League!)

Let’s call this a depth move that’s zero risk thanks to the free transfer with some upside considering Woodbine’s national team experience.
