Romeo Parkes is back for another season.

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds announced that the forward would return for the 2018 season. He is one of two players returning, joining Chevaughn Walsh.

“We’re excited to have Romeo back for the 2018 season. We think he can be one of the most dangerous forwards in this league with his power, pace and ability to beat players off the dribble,” said head coach Bob Lilley.

Parkes originally signed with the Riverhounds in 2016, but left the club halfway through the season. However, he returned in 2017, and has made 30 total appearances for the club.

Also, in separate posts on social media, forward Corey Hertzog and goalkeeper Keasel Broome announced that they would not be returning for 2018.

Hertzog made 62 appearances in all competitions for the Riverhounds, scoring 27 goals.

The Riverhounds will be hosting open tryouts for the next season on Dec. 8 and Dec. 9.
