EL PASO - El Paso Locomotive FC adds defender Drew Beckie to their 2019 roster, pending league and federation approval.

Character-wise he is the perfect addition, and he is another tough experienced competitor who knows what it takes to win. He will be a wonderful addition to our defensive unit and gives us fantastic depth," said Lowry.
