Chattanooga Football Club are thrilled to welcome forward Brian Bement to the club. Bement was a member of the inaugural Forward Madison team that went deep into the USL1 playoffs, and before that played for powerhouse Jacksonville Armada and Puerto Rico FC. Bement is known as a tough, hard nosed player who can play several positions when called upon.
“I’m ecstatic to be joining a club with such a great history of winning!” said Bement. “I really like the leadership of Jeremy, Peter and Bill, and their vision for the club. Also, the support of the Chattahooligans is very well known amongst the soccer community and I knew I wanted to play in front of those amazing fans! Can’t wait to get started to represent Chattanooga!”
Last year, Bement scored two goals and an assist in 21 appearances with Forward Madison. The Waterloo, Illinois native stands out for his high work rate and energy in all phases of the game.
“Brian comes to us from Forward Madison of USL League One” said Peter Fuller, Head Coach, Chattanooga FC. “He was an Important part of their playoff run last season. He is a strong, physical, and intelligent player and can play multiple positions.”
Supporters will get a chance to see Brian in action on February 29th in Oakland against Oakland Roots, and March 14th against Michigan Stars. Chattanooga FC’s NISA Spring schedule is out and is available on ChattanoogaFC.com. Annual passes are available now at ChattanoogaFC.com, and individual tickets go on sale February 24th.
