Hammerheads sign Ross Tomaselli


Hammerheads Press Release

Wilmington, NC – Wilmington Hammerheads FC announced today the addition of midfielder Ross Tomaselli to the squad for the remainder of the 2014 USL PRO regular season.

Tomaselli found minutes with the Hammerheads as he took the field during a friendly match against Major League Soccer's Toronto FC earlier in the season.

"After training with the team the past couple of months, I am really excited to get on board," said Tomaselli. "They are a great group of guys and I am excited about what we can accomplish the rest of this season."

Tomaselli begins his professional debut with the Hammerheads following a four-year collegiate career at Wake Forest University. The midfielder served as team captain leading his team to the third round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, tallying five goals and eight assists overall.

"Ross is a committed player who cares deeply for the club and wants to be a part of its success," said Hammerheads Technical Director Carson Porter. "He is a quality technical player who understands the game and can play a number of different spots. We welcome Ross and look forward to his contributions."

A native of Wilmington, Tomaselli attended New Hanover High School and will now return to Legion Stadium once again, but this time to take the pitch with the Hammerheads.

"It is extra special for me because I am a local guy," said Tomaselli. "I really look forward to being back out at Legion Stadium again."

Tomaselli worked his way through the local youth system with the former Cape Fear Soccer Club and Capital Area Soccer League. He was a member of the North Carolina 1992 ODP Team, the 1992 Region III ODP Team and the U14, U15, and U17 U.S. Youth National pools.
