[USL PRO 2014 COUNTDOWN] The Charleston Battery has acquired five players on loan from the Vancouver Whitecaps as part of their affiliation agreement. None has previous MLS experience.

Striker Mamadou Diouf and Andre Lewis were taken in the 2014 SuperDraft, Aminu Abdallah and Jackson Farmer were previously part of the Whitecaps FC Residency program and striker Marlon Ramirez hails from Honduras.

“Our partnership with Charleston provides a fantastic opportunity for our young players to progress in their development at a great club,” said Carl Robinson, Whitecaps FC head coach. “Each of these players will be given the opportunity to earn regular first-team minutes at a high level, which will only help as they continue in their careers.”

Abdallah, 20, joined Whitecaps FC in May 2013 after five years with Ghanaian club International Allies FC.

The Senegalese-born Diouf, 23, played at UConn and will begin his professional career with the Battery after getting selected by Whitecaps FC in the second round (30th overall) of the SuperDraft.

Lewis, 19, joined Whitecaps FC as a youth international on January 16 after being selected seventh overall in the 2014 SuperDraft from Jamaican club Portmore United.

Farmer, 18, spent three seasons in the Whitecaps FC Residency program in the Development Academy.

Ramirez, 19, joined the ‘Caps after playing in Honduras’ top-flight with Vida.
