In particular, Michaud has developed a habit of finding the back of the net during the U.S. Open Cup, the oldest soccer tournament in the United States. Forward Madison will enter the Open Cup’s 106th edition next season with a man who has scored six goals in the competition, including one against Major League Soccer’s Real Salt Lake.
“I’m the type of player that shows up in big games,” Michaud said in a statement. “When it’s all-or-nothing, I think I tend to perform very well.”
Shore coached Michaud earlier this year in Miami, and he was present as Michaud scored in both the NPSL semi-final and championship games.
“We are excited to add Jeff to our team and are looking forward to what he will bring to our team both on and off of the field,” Shore said.
“I’d like to continue right where I left off with Daryl,” Michaud said. “I’m really looking forward to getting out there.”
Michaud’s signing will be confirmed pending league and federation approval.
