Real Name: Liam Ridgewell
HT: 6' 2" WT: 175
Age: 31 (07/21/1984)
Birthplace: Bexley, England

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on June 25, 2014, as a Designated Player.

In the long list of defensive Designated Player signings, few had the immediate and devastating impact that Liam Ridgewell did in 2015. After only playing in MLS for half a season, Ridgewell hit the ground running in 2015 and formed the basis for the team’s defensive shape during its run to the MLS title. A lock-down defender who’s no stranger to the occasional foray forward, Ridgewell has proved his worth many times over already in his stint in Portland. After nearly 10 years in the English Premier League, the Englishman is perhaps in the form of his life.

INTERNATIONAL: Ridgewell rose to the U21 level with England, making eight caps.

OUTSIDE MLS: Ridgewell had a long, distinguished career in England with Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Birmingham City and West Brom before embarking for MLS. In all, Ridgewell played 11 seasons in the English Premier League and racked up a number of memorable defensive performances.
