Enriquez returns to Forward Madison midfield


Christian Enriquez, who added a spark to the Forward Madison midfield in 2021 and scored his first professional goal on an immaculate free kick in the Mingos’ final home game of the season, will return for 2022, the club announced Tuesday.

Hailing from the San Diego area, Enriquez trained with the USL Championship side San Diego Loyal last year before signing with Madison three months into the 2021 season. He’s also seen time with Portland Timbers II and 1904 San Diego in NISA, and played his college soccer for Cal Poly.

Appearing in 15 games on his first professional contract, he completed 398 passes for a strong 89.4 percent passing accuracy.

Enriquez joins fellow midfielders Aaron Molloy, Derek Gebhard and Justin Sukow, along with goalkeeper Phil Breno and defender Cyrus Rad, in returning for the 2022 season.
