Goalkeeper Felix Lindeberg signs with IFK Haninge
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Former Plymouth State University men's soccer goalkeeper Felix Lindeberg (Stockholm, Sweden) has signed a professional contract with IFK Haninge in Division Two of the Södra Svealand league in Svealand, Sweden.
Lindeberg, a three-year captain and two-time Academic All-American at Plymouth State, is the latest in a long line of men's soccer alumni to have played professionally at the end of their PSU careers.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to join IFK Haninge," said Lindeberg, who graduated summa cum laude as a biology major last May. "It is a team with great ambitions and a good mix of young, talented players and older, more experienced guys. I hope to be able to strengthen their goalkeeper squad and contribute to winning games throughout the rest of the season."
Lindeberg started 50 games in goal for the Panthers from 2013-16, recording 281 saves and sporting a 1.91 career goals against average. He was brilliant in the net in 2015 when he let in just 15 goals (a 1.05 GAA), while recording an .817 save percentage to help lead the Panthers to a 5-1-1 mark in the Little East Conference (LEC) and a share of the LEC regular season title.
"We are delighted for Felix," said head coach Rob Wright. "From the moment he arrived at PSU it was clear that he was not only an outstanding individual, but a top-class goalkeeper. I'm sure he will grab the opportunity with both hands."
IFK Haninge is currently 8-5-5 and sits in fourth place in the 14-team league with 29 points. Lindeberg should have an opportunity to make an impact, as the teams' 34 goals allowed are the third most in the league.
