[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN] Indy Eleven has spread out all across Indiana as it promotes its first season in the NASL. Its latest stop was Indiana University’s iconic Assembly Hall, where it introduced a pair of former Hoosiers -- forward Mike Ambersley and midfielder Brad Ring -- as the newest members of its team.
 
Ring joins Indy after four seasons and 38 games in MLS with San Jose and Portland, while Ambersley was a 2011 Best XI pick at Tampa Bay, the fourth of five clubs he's been at on the second division level.

“Adding Mike Ambersley and Brad Ring not only gives our roster two more starting-caliber players, it also strengthens the bonds to the finest collegiate soccer program in the country,” said Indy Eleven President/General Manager Peter Wilt. “Indiana University has provided soccer fans across Indiana championships to celebrate on a regular basis and has done so with great integrity, and that's the blueprint Indy Eleven will strive to follow.”

STRIKERS LOAN OUT PECKA. The Fort Lauderdale Strikers picked up the contract option on Brazilian midfielder Pecka, then have loaned him to Madureira in Brazil until the end of March.

He'll play for Madureira in the Campeonato Carioca, the Rio state championship, and then return for the start of the NASL season. Pecka has been with the Strikers since August 2011, making 33 starts and serving as captain for the 2013 fall season.

-- The expansion Ottawa Fury signed its 11th player, Canadian defender Drew Beckie. He spent the 2013 MLS season with Columbus, playing on the reserve team. The University of Denver product returns to Ottawa after capturing a PDL title with the Fury PDL team in 2012. Beckie has agreed to a one-year contract.

-- The San Antonio Scorpions signed Canadian defender Adrian Cann, who has spent time in MLS with Colorado and Montreal, in the USL First Division and in Denmark.

VAN DER BECK NAMED ROWDIES GM. Perry Van der Beck, whose roots with the Tampa Bay Rowdies go back to 1978 when he was drafted out of high school, has been named their general manager.

Van der Beck, the 1984 U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, was the coach of the MLS Tampa Bay Mutiny for its final 11 games in 2001. He recently served as the executive vice president, technical director and director of player development for the Rowdies.

-- Ryan Helfrick will be returning to the Rowdies as director of sales.

WYNALDA'S STAFF. Costa Rican Ricardo Montoya will serve as Atlanta technical director Eric Wynalda’s first assistant while still maintaining his duties at the helm of the Silverbacks Reserves, who will compete in the NPSL in 2014.

Alejandro Pombo, Juan Castellanos and Eduardo “Lalo” Liza, familiar faces in the Atlanta soccer community, were also named as Silverbacks assistants.
