    PUERTO CORTES, Honduras – Honduran side Platense announced Monday the signing of American goalkeeper Chris Sheridan to a six-month contract. 

    The 21-year-old played university football with Eastern New Mexico University in 2010 and 2012.  He was on the 2013 roster of the Premier Development League’s Houston Dutch Lions, but did not appear in any games.

    “It is a beautiful opportunity,” said the 6-foot, 4-inch netminder, who joins a team that is looking for its third league title and first since the 2001 Clausura.  “I am very happy to be here in Honduras six months and be a Platense player.”

    Platense, which fell to Deportes Savio in the first round of the 2013 Apertura playoffs, is enjoying an active offseason.  Honduran international forward Georgie Welcome, Colombian forward Jhon Castillo, midfielder Fredy Medina, forward Kervin Jhonson, midfielder Víctor Mina, forward Randy Diamond, goalkeeper Jacobo Flores and midfielder Rigoberto Padilla have all been added to the 2014 Clausura roster.

    NOTES: Platense opens Clausura play on January 12, when it hosts Vida.
