Former Quinnipiac Stand-Out Freddy Hall Signs With Northampton Town F.C.
Former Quinnipiac University men's soccer stand-out Freddy Hall '10 (St. George, Bermuda) was recently signed to a professional contract with Northampton Town F.C. of the English Football League Two. Football League Two is the third-highest division of The Football League and fourth-highest division overall in the English football league system.
Hall was named the Most Valuable Player for the 2009 season after helping lead the Bobcats to their first appearance in Northeast Conference Championship Game in program history.
Hall earned the team's top honor after being named to the All-NEC First Team during his senior year after two straight seasons as a member of the All-NEC Second Team. He was also recognized as part of the 2009 adidas National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-North Atlantic Regional Second Team.
The three-year starter led the Bobcats to back-to-back NEC Tournament berths for the first time in program history in 2008 and 2009 on his way to his second honor as a member of the conference's All-Tournament Team.
The Bobcats' goalkeeper was ranked first or second in every statistical category in the NEC this past season. Hall not only led the conference in saves, but all of Division I in 2009, turning aside 121 shots on his way to posting the third best save percentage in the nation (.883). In 20 games this season, Hall allowed just 16 goals and posted 10 shutouts during his final season in Hamden. All of these also helped Hall win the "Player's Player of the Year" award as voted on by his teammates.
Hall also played for Bermuda's U17 and U21 national teams.
