University of Kentucky men’s soccer adds pair of new players
Both Faiz—a true freshman—and Margono—a redshirt freshman—will be eligible for competition this spring.
Faiz is set to begin his collegiate career out of Casablanca, Morocco, where he competed for Wydad Athletic Club. Donning jersey No. 14, Faiz becomes the eighth midfielder on the Kentucky roster.
Margono transfers to Kentucky from Denver, where he redshirted the 2019 season. Hailing from New York, Margono competed for Sleepy Hollow High School and Metropolitan Oval Academy before his brief stint with the Pioneers.
Kentucky returns 21 players from an abbreviated fall 2020 non-conference slate that ended on a five-match winning streak and with a 5-1 record overall. The Wildcats peaked at No. 3 in last fall’s United Soccer Coaches rankings.
Kentucky’s spring 2021 schedule is set to be announced later this week.
