CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

FC Cincinnati locked down another big piece on their roster Thursday by re-signing goalkeeper Mitch Hildebrandt to a multi-year contract.

“When we spoke to Mitch prior to signing him last year, he wanted an opportunity to prove himself and I believe he did that,” said Head Coach John Harkes. “We are excited to have him back because he is someone who will work tirelessly to help FCC win a USL Cup Final.”

Hildebrandt won USL Goalkeeper of the Year in FCC’s inaugural season. He was also a USL first-team honoree and posted nine clean sheets.

“I couldn’t be happier about staying in Cincinnati,” said Hildebrandt. “I’m very excited about 2017 and the team that we are bringing back. The off-season will be a more relaxed one now that we’ve finalized things. With regards to training, there are things I have on the list to work on but for now, I will take the time to rest and rejuvenate so I can come back in February ready to help the team build off of 2016.

Hildebrandt, who started 32 of 33 games last season, joins a group of 15 players who are currently under contract for FCC for the 2017 season.
