Rapids Agree To New Contract With Davy Armstrong

Garrett Ellwood/Colorado Rapids-USA TODAY Sports

The first homegrown player in Rapids history signs a new contract to keep him in Burgundy.

After a dour tie on Wednesday good news drifted out of Commerce City as it was announced that the Rapids first ever Homegrown player, Davy Armstrong, signed a new contract.  Armstrong, as you remember, started his Rapids first team career under Gary Smith and enjoyed lifting the MLS Cup in 2010.  He has been a fixture for the reserve team as his first team action has been limited, but did feature in some 2011 CONCACAF Champions League fixtures in 2011.  He made his MLS regular season debut in 2012 and featured in the Swansea City friendly in that summer as well.

Last year while on loan, Armstrong suffered a torn ACL and was out of action for the bulk of the year, but has worked his way to full fitness and is ready to rejoin the first team.  And with the Rapids player rotation theme going on, you have to imagine that he will see some sort of first team playing time this year.   As the Rapids are an organization that is committed to youth, this can't be seen as anything but a good thing for Armstrong and the Rapids.

Let us know...are you excited that Armstrong has re-signed with the Rapids?  Are you hoping that he can get some playing time to see what he can offer?  Let us know in the comments section.
