Forward Madison FC have signed Mitchell Osmond, a defender from Sydney, Australia. The 27-year-old defender joins the Flamingos after most recently playing for OKC Energy FC where he started 32 matches under the FMFC’s new assistant coach, John Pascarella.
“I’ve known Mitch for a number of years, both playing against him and then coaching him at OKC,” said Assistant Coach John Pascarella. “He brings a lot of maturity and experience to the locker room, all while having winning-mentality.”
Osmond earned some impressive honors during his time in college when he played for Thunder Bay Chill and Rio Grande Red Storm. In 2017, he was named USL League Two Defender of the Year while playing for the USL League Two team Thunder Bay Chill. In 2018, he earned NAIA First Team All-American honors, River States Conference Player of the Year, River States Conference Defender of the Year, and First Team All-River States Conference while playing for Rio Grande Red Storm.
Upon graduating college, Osmond was drafted by Minnesota United in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. He played for Indy Eleven from 2019 to 2020, where he made 17 appearances and finished second on the team with a high passing accuracy before moving on to Energy FC for the 2021 season.
FMFC is excited to welcome Osmond to the 608 and has high hopes for this new defender.
