#8Michael Bustamante


Michael scored six goals and provided a joint team-leading four assists during an impressive 2016 season that saw him selected to the all-NPSL first team.  He led the team in minutes played with 1,406, starting every match.  His six goals came during an eight-game spell, triggered by a spectacular free kick scored away to the Brooklyn Italians.

The Medellin-born midfielder is another local product, having attended Chelsea High School and played collegiate soccer at Boston University. He was selected in the 2013 MLS supplemental draft by the New York Red Bulls where he made 4 appearances, including his debut in the U.S. Open Cup. He made his MLS debut as a substitute against the Montreal Impact in 2013. He has also played for the Worcester Hydra of the PDL, the Boston Bolts, Boston Blazers and most recently in 2015 Charlotte Independence of the USL.
