Tropics sign veteran forward Tyrone Hall

by Brian Ackley

The Florida Tropics have added another veteran forward for the 2017-18 season signing Tyrone Hall for the team's second season in the Major Arena Soccer League.

Hall has played for the past two years with the MASL Tacoma Stars, and also played arena soccer for the Ontario Fury, Harrisburg Heat and Pennsylvania Roar. The deal is pending final league approval.

In 32 career games, he has notched eight goals. His best season came for Tacoma in 2015-16 with five goals and four assists in 16 games.

He played college soccer for Limestone College and Radford University, where he played winger and forward. In addition to years of professional indoor experience, Hall has competed internationally for Sporting Kristina in Finland during 2014, and as a member of the USL's Charlotte Eagles in 2014 where he appeared in 14 games.

“Improving our attack was a goal in the off-season, and Tyrone is a young veteran who will improve our scoring depth which becomes so critical over the span of a 22-game season,” Coach Clay Roberts said.

The Tropics will have their home opener on Nov. 18 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, looking to improve on last year's mark of 8-12. A full 22-game schedule will be released later this summer. The regular season runs from November to March.
