LA Galaxy signs forward Preston Judd from LA Galaxy II

Fresh off a thrilling 3-1 road win over the Portland Woods, LA Galaxy today announced the signing of striker Preston Judd. The striker joins a long list of players who left USL Championship affiliate LA Galaxy II – Los Dos – with the team signing Judd to a one-year contract, until the end of the 2022 regular season. the MLS. The deal also gives the club two option years.

“Preston is a powerful and hard-working striker who has proven his qualities with the LA Galaxy II,” LA Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing his professional development within our organization.” The Las Vegas native joins the Galaxy after a solid year and a move to the USL Championship. In 2021, the 22-year-old has made 32 appearances with 27 starts. He scored 17 goals and delivered three assists. In his brief time to start the 2022 season, he was named a starter in all four matches and had already scored his first goal of the season.

Although he has shown his ability to score goals, chances are he will come deep into the senior team. That doesn’t mean he won’t get his chances, but he’s unlikely to be penned into the starting XI any time soon. Still, he’s definitely a player to watch, and one that could make an impact when he sees the pitch. He’s a solid addition to an already strong attacking front for the Galaxy.
