LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas Lights FC announced on Wednesday it had added forward Rashawn Dally to its roster on loan from FC Cincinnati of Major League Soccer ahead of its return to action in the 2020 USL Championship season.
The Jamaican youth international was selected with the 49th overall pick of the 2019 Major League Soccer SuperDraft by FC Cincinnati. On July 6, 2019, he scored his first MLS goal in his third appearance in the league against the Houston Dynamo.
Dally was previously invited by the Jamaica National Team to training camp in March 2018. He has experience in the USL Championship, having been loaned to Memphis 901 FC of the Eastern Conference last season, where he scored one goal in 12 appearances.
Per the Right of Recall incorporated in the loan agreement, FC Cincinnati retains the right to recall their player at any point during the MLS regular season, subject to MLS roster compliance guidelines.
In addition to Dally's arrival on loan, Lights FC has signed defender Jaiden Waggoner. Waggoner recently graduated from Utah Valley University, where he played for three years. He was an undisputed starter in his senior season, recording 19 appearances for the Wolverines as he returned to the lineup after missing extended time in 2018 due to injury.
In addition to his college career at Utah State, Waggoner also competed in USL League Two for the BYU Cougars, where he made 11 appearances in the 2016 season.
