Hartford Athletic Signs Forward Bradford Jamieson IV
HARTFORD, Conn. - Hartford Athletic has signed forward Bradford Jamieson IV pending league and federation approval.
At just seventeen years old, Jamieson IV signed a homegrown contract with the LA Galaxy. He made his professional debut with LA Galaxy II in February of 2014 and in July, made his debut with the MLS side. Alternating back and forth between the two sides in his rookie season, Jamieson IV was named a finalist for USL Pro "Rookie of the Year" in 2014. He stayed with the club until the 2019 season where he went on loan with fellow USL Championship side San Antonio FC. He played twenty matches and scored five goals before moving over to Danish 1st Division side Vendsyssel FF for the 2020 season.
"We are excited to bring Bradford to our club. Having shared lots of conversations, I'm so excited we got this one over the line," said Hartford Athletic Head Coach Harry Watling. "He brings us pace, imagination, and skill. He is a player who will light up the league with goals and assists."
Jamieson IV has strong youth international experience. After completing four semesters at the US Soccer Residency program, he represented the US at a number of tournaments, most notably the 2015 U20 World Cup. He played four games, made three starts and scored a goal scored against host country New Zealand.
