    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – With an eye on its participation in the upcoming CONCACAF Champions League (CCL), Honduras’ Real España announced Monday the acquisition of striker Rony Flores.

    The 29-year-old is expected to strengthen further an offense that struck for a league-best 69 total goals over the 2013 Apertura and 2014 Clausura seasons.  Flores led Victoria in scoring with six goals during the Clausura, an amount that tied him for ninth on the overall goals chart. 

    The Aurinegros had previously signed defenders Oscar Fortin Midence (Deportes Savio) and Porciano Ávila (Parrillas One).

    Flores’ career, which started in youth ranks of Olimpia, has seen him make stops in Uruguay with Bella Vista and in China with Shenzhen Ruby.  He also had two spells with Marathon.

    Real España, which captured the 2013 Apertura title, will be making its third CCL appearance and first since the 2011-12 edition.
