HARTFORD, Conn. – Hartford Athletic announced on Thursday it had signed forward Jeciel Cedeño, pending league and federation approval.

Cedeño made an impression on the coaching staff thanks to his preseason performance. He scored twice in a friendly against Newtown Pride FC and added a third preseason goal in a 3-0 win over the University of Hartford in the preseason finale. Prior to joining Hartford Athletic, Cedeño played in the New York Red Bulls Academy and appeared in two matches for the New York Red Bulls II during the 2019 USL Championship season.

“Jeciel is another young, exciting addition to our roster,” said Hartford Athletic Head Coach Harry Watling. “After scoring three excellent goals in the preseason, Jeciel has impressed immensely with his skill and inventive play. It’s yet more magic in the top half of the pitch to add to our roster.”

After an undefeated start to the season, Hartford Athletic returns home this Saturday as it hosts Real Monarchs SLC at Dillon Stadium at 7 p.m. ET.
