    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Tauro FC added offensive depth to its roster on Saturday, announcing the signing of forward Bernardo Palma, who spent the last two-and-a-half years on the books at Chepo.

    The 26-year-old -- nephew Tauro head coach Roland Palma – did not score in the recently completed Panamanian Clausura, but struck four times during preceding Apertura campaign.

    As defending champions, the Toros netted only 16 goals in 18 Clausura games on the way to an eighth-place finish, missing a playoff berth by five points.

    With the 2014 Apertura and 2013/15 CONCACAF Champions League on the horizon, Palma joins another forward – Jair Renteria – as Tauro’s first two offseason acquisitions.

    Palma inked a one-year contract with the 12-time Panamanian champion.
