CAREER

2017: Signed with the Armada (7/17)... Scored his first goal with the Armada FC in the 3rd minute against NCFC (8/12)...

 

The Jacksonville Armada FC announced the signing of Alejandro Antonio “Tony” Taylor Jr. on Friday, July 28, 2017.

The 28-year-old striker returned to his hometown of Jacksonville after spending some time in Portugal and Major League Soccer.

Taylor joined the New England Revolution of the MLS in 2014 and the club won the Eastern Conference Championship and made it to the MLS Cup Final the same year. In December he became the 5th pick of New York City Football Club in the MLS expansion draft.

Taylor recorded the second goal in NYCFC history in the inaugural preseason friendly with St. Mirren. Despite suffering an injury in his first start of 2015, he continued to work with NYCFC to return to the pitch. That return did happen in January 2016 and Taylor both started and scored in the first game of the season. He went on to help NYCFC get to the MLS playoffs for the first time in history.

In 2009, Taylor went international to GD Estorial Praia of the Portuguese Second Division. He spent three seasons there, including a half-season loan to Atletico Club de Portugal. With Estorial, he helped the team to win the second division Liga Orangina and gain promotion to the Portuguese First Division Liga Sagres.

Taylor then transferred to the Cypriot first division club Omonoia Nicosia and participated in the UEFA Europe League matches from 2013 to 2014 before beginning his career in the MLS. He returned to Portugual in January 2017 when he signed with first division Paços de Ferreira.

 

 

YOUTH/PERSONAL

Although born in Long Beach, California, Taylor’s father was in the military so he grew up playing soccer both in Virginia and Jacksonville. His family permanently moved to Jacksonville in 2003. Taylor was a standout player at Bishop Kenny High School and in club soccer with JYS Soccer Club and Jacksonville Jaguars Soccer Club. After high school, he spent some time with the Central Florida Kraze before being recruited by the University of South Florida in 2007.

Taylor transferred to Jacksonville University in 2008, helping the team complete the best season in school history. The Dolphins won the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship and moved on to play in the NCAA tournament for the first time.
