Utica, N.Y. - Utica City FC signed what they are calling their 'marquee player' for the upcoming season, Thursday.

The team announced that they have signed forward Bozidar "Bo" Jelovac for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

Jelovac tallied 26 points (13-13-26) in 22 games with the Syracuse Silver Knights in the 2017-18 season.

He's spent six years between in the MASL and MISL, where he has 56 goals and 54 assists.

The 6'3, 195-pound Serbia native has been with the Silver Knights since 2012, and served as their captain from 2015 to 2017.

He received the Silver Knights' Unsung Hero award in 2014, and earned All-MISL second team of the year in the 2013-14 season.

"We are very excited to have Bo join us for our opening season here in Utica," said Ryan Hall, Utica City FC head coach. "He is unquestionably one of the premier players in the league and a dominant force on the field. He will be a great asset."

During the MASL offseason, Jelovac most recently played for the Greater Binghamton FC Thunder. He expressed his excitement to joining City this upcoming year.

"Very excited, I heard great things about the organization right now especially with the hockey team, talking to the coach Ryan Hall, Tommy Tanner and Rob Esche made me more excited," Jelovac said. "I think it's going to be great here. I'm really happy to be part of this organization."

Prior to joining the Silver Knights, Jelovac played at the University at Albany for four years, where he was co-captain and MVP of the team. He led the Great Danes in scoring and was named to the America East All-Conference Men's Soccer Second Team in 2010.
