The New York Cosmos have signed Cosmos B defender and Long Island native Kyle McTurk. As per club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

The Hauppauge native who graduated from Smithtown West High School was a standout defender for Stony Brook University, making 71 appearances and 63 starts in four years. He joined Cosmos B for the reserve side’s 2016 National Premier Soccer League Season, starting 11 matches at right back.

“Kyle has proven himself in training sessions with the first team,” said Giovanni Savarese, Cosmos Head Coach. “We are committed to providing a pathway for players that are developing in our club and we’re pleased to add him to the squad as we push for another successful season.”

McTurk debuted for the first team in its Las Vegas friendly against SD Eibar on May 25 of this year, replacing Yasmani Duk in the 82nd minute of the match.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” McTurk said. “I’m focused on working hard and contributing to the team any way I can.”
