New England Revolution II has signed Revolution Academy product Meny Silva, the club announced Tuesday. Silva becomes the first active Revolution Academy player to sign with the League One club.
Silva scored nine goals across 29 matches with the Revolution Academy’s Under-17 and Under-19 sides after joining the program during the 2017-18 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season. The 17-year-old became an inaugural member of the Revolutions Residency Program ahead of the 2019-20 season and trained with the Revolution’s first team in 2019.
With the addition of Silva, Revolution II's roster now consists of nine players, including Revolution Academy graduate Nick Woodruff. Mayele Malango, Ryan Spaulding, Connor Presley, Collin Verfurth, Lucas "Maciel" Felix, Ryo Shimazaki and Orlando Sinclair join Silva and Woodruff on Revolution II’s current 2020 roster.
