New Mexico United News Release

Albuquerque, NM - New Mexico United is thrilled to announce the extension of defender Will Seymore ahead of the 2024 USL Championship season. Seymore has been a key player for United for the last two seasons, serving as an anchor in the back, as well as a terrific community ambassador.

"Will has earned this contract through his hard work, care for community, and commitment to making United and himself better every single day," said United Sporting Director Itamar Keinan. "We are thrilled to have him locked in for the next two seasons, and know that he will be crucial to our success in the coming seasons."

In two seasons with United, Seymore has made 68 appearances across all competitions, compiling more than 5,500 minutes, and locking down the center of defense. Seymore has scored twice and assisted once over that time.

Seymore was born in Colorado Springs and spent his youth career with Colchester United and Cambridge United academies in England, and signed with Soham Town Rangers before playing college ball at Oregon State. As a four-year starter with the Beavers, he earned all-conference honors and was named to the TopDrawerSoccer top 100 freshman list.

After college, Seymore was drafted in the third round (56th overall) of the MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas, and played a few matches with Lane United before signing on with the USL Championship's Vancouver Whitecaps 2. Across five seasons in the USL-C, with Vancouver, FC Cincinnati, and Reno 1868 FC, Seymore made 87 appearances, and an additional three in the US Open Cup. In that time, he had a passing accuracy rate of 83.97%, a duel success rate of 54.3%, a tackle success rate of 62.5%, made 59 interceptions, and 278 recoveries.

After his time in the USL Championship, Seymore made his way to Sligo Rover of the Irish Premier Division, where he has made 49 appearances across league and domestic cup fixtures, and helped lead the club to 2020 UEFA Europa League qualification. In 2021, he joined Finn Harps FC, scoring two goals in 33 matches.
