TUCKER, St James — Owayne Gordon will return to the Montego Bay United (MBU) line-up when the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) resumes this month, and the coaching staff as well as the fans will hope he picks up from where he left off when he led the team to the title last season.

Gordon, who led the RSPL with a career-high 20 goals and was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP), missed the final against Portmore United when he left for Indy XI in the North American NASL on a loan deal.

Orville Powell, MBU’s president, confirmed last week that Gordon, who returned to the island in November after scoring twice in 19 games for Indy XI, will return to the team and hopefully will help to boost the leaders’ offensive thrust.

If everything goes the way Powell hopes, Gordon will not be the only addition to the squad that leads the RSPL with 35 points after 17 games, a little more than halfway through the season in terms of games played.

Dino Williams is the leading goal scorer for MBU with seven of the team’s 22 goals, and Powell hinted that they will be seeking to boost the attacking thrust, but said he would not say which players they were hoping to lure to WesPow Park yet.

"We are targeting some players who we think will be able to help us, but we don’t want to say anything yet until we have something solid," he said.
