Goalkeeper Rashid Nuhu Returns for Third Season with Union Omaha
PAPILLION, Neb. - Union Omaha announced today the return of goalkeeper Rashid Nuhu for the 2022 season, pending league and federation approval. The 2021 USL League One Golden Glove award winner joins five other returners from the 2021 championship squad.
Nuhu finished the 2021 campaign with a 72% save percentage and recorded 10 clean sheets on the way to the title. Following a 2020 campaign where he lead the team in minutes played, while recording 6 clean sheets, and a USL1 Final appearance, Nuhu has emerged as one of the best goalkeepers in USL1.
"Rashid's progress has been amazing to watch here," said Union Omaha Head Coach Jay Mims. "He keeps on improving on and off the field. We look forward to continuing his development here in Omaha and we are really excited for the next few years here for him!"
"I am very excited to be returning to such an amazing club that will continue to help with my development as a player and more importantly a better person" said Nuhu. "I am thrilled to be back in an incredible culture that has been formed within the team. With the guidance and support of Union Omaha, I look forward to continuing to being the best professional player I can be in this wonderful environment that has been created."
The 2022 Championship defending campaign is set to begin on April 9 with a visit to Forward Madison FC. The home opener at Werner Park set for April 23 vs USL1 newcomer Central Valley Fuego FC.
