Coach Kenrick Liburd went back to his roots in bolstering his Tennessee
Temple University men's soccer team. He recruited winger Jay Fremmer from
Leicester, England, for the Crusaders season that starts Saturday afternoon
at Georgia Gwinnett after an exhibition tonight at Sewanee.
Another recent arrival is goalkeeper Josue Fernandez from Costa Rica.
Nwanokwu has three years of eligibility remaining; the other two are

We¹re excited about both of them, Liburd said. We felt like there
were some holes we had to plug this year, and these guys will help do that. We
particularly felt we needed to be more solid down our spine, including the
goalkeeper position and the center mid.
Fremmer, he said, provides a needed additional offensive option.
We¹ve added an international flavor to our group, Liburd added, with
people who understand the need to work hard every day. We expect all three
to be impact players right away.
The two from England hooked up with Temple through the Sporting Chance U.S.
agency headed by John Sparks, who has a son playing for Tennessee Wesleyan.
Fernandez said he sent applications to several U.S. schools, and Liburd was
one of the coaches who responded.
Its really nice here. Everybody here has been very kind. I really like
it, Fernandez said of TTU. Fremmer added that there is a good atmosphere
on the campus, and Chattanooga is very nice as well.
