Charlotte Independence News Release

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte Independence announced today defender Fabrice Ngah is returning to the 2024 squad. Ngah joins a solid returning corps of defenders from last year's roster.

"I am delighted to welcome Fabrice back," Head Coach Mike Jeffries expressed. "He is strong and solid defensively and plays with great composure in possession. His decision making on the ball and ability to hit a variety of passes will aid in our build up play; in the final third, he has shown the ability to make a difference making play."

Ngah played in 23 matches, starting five, last year primarily at left back. His long pass success rate was among the best on the team in 2023. Ngah scored his first goal for the club just two minutes after entering as a substitute in the Jacks' emphatic 4-1 win over Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC.

Before joining the Independence, Ngah played for Canon Yaoundé in the top flight of Cameroonian soccer. He also had a previous stop at Cleopatra FC in the Egyptian Premier League and multiple teams in Morocco from 2017-2020. Ngah appeared in 30 games and earned one goal with four assists for Difaâ El Jadida followed by 53 appearances two goals and two assists for Raja Club Athletic. He started his professional career in Cameroon with Les Astres FC in 2013.

In 2014, Ngah received his first call up to the Cameroonian National Team and has since appeared in four games. He last appeared for the national team in 2021 as a starter against Cape Verde in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

Ngah is the 15th player returning from the 2023 squad which reached the USL League One Final. Jeffries continues to build upon the team's success from last season, returning a core group of impact players.
