Myron Samuel (born 19 December 1992) is a Vincentian international footballer who currently plays for Seattle Sounders FC 2 in the USL. Samuel is one of the youngest players to play and to score for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Club career[edit]

Samuel played for Vincentian NLA Premier League clubs System 3 FC in 2009 and Avenues United FC from 2009 to 2013, and Rendezvous FC of the Barbados Premier Division from 2013 to 2015.[1] He scored 14 goals in 2013,[2] 25 goals in 2014,[3] and 12 goals in 2015.[4] On 7 June 2011, Samuel appeared in a reserve match for American side Seattle Sounders FC.[5] On 18 August 2015, it was announced that he had returned to Seattle and signed for its reserve team in the United Soccer League, Seattle Sounders FC 2. He joined his national team strike partner Oalex Anderson and fellow Vincentian and Seattle manager Ezra Hendrickson who brought him to Seattle during his first stint in 2011.[1] The next day, Samuel made his debut for the club, coming on as a second-half substitute. He went on to score two goals in the match, including the game-winner, as Seattle won 3–2 over the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC.[6] It was later revealed that Samuel had broken his foot in the same match and had undergone successful surgery and was undergoing rehabilitation.[7] The player was expected to be out for 10 weeks, missing the remaining six games of the season, and possibly longer.[8]

On 4 December 2015, it was announced that Samuel would return to S2 for the 2016 USL season, along with international teammate Oalex Anderson.[9]

International career[edit]

Samuel made his senior debut for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in 2008 at the age of 18 during 2008 Caribbean Cup qualification.[10] Samuel won the Golden Boot as top scorer during the 2015 Windward Islands Tournament with four goals and three matches as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines were crowned champions of the tournament for the first time.[11]
