The New York Cosmos have announced that defender Jimmy Mulligan has returned from his loan to Swope Park Rangers in the USL.

The 24-year old fullback made started in 16 matches and made one substitute appearance while on loan to the USL side.

“Playing in Kansas City helped me further develop my game, and I’d like to thank the coaches and players for that,” Mulligan said. “I’m happy to be back with my team and I’m ready to contribute.”

Mulligan originally signed with the Cosmos in back half of the 2014 season. Since then he’s made six appearances and five starts for New York.

The Cosmos bring Mulligan back into the fold at a critical time. The NASL schedule is picking up steam and the Cosmos roster is in need of some depth.

“Having Jimmy back with the team gives us more flexibility,” said Cosmos Head Coach Giovanni Savarese. “The length of the Fall Season will test our depth. Jimmy can contribute a great deal to this team going forward.”

    Who? Why can’t we sign players like Villa or Harrison? Why can’t we sign players like Robles, Kljestan and Grella?

    I’m sick and tired of following independent minor league football sides.

    What MLS team should I follow?

      Follow my team! NYCFC! I has their logo tattooed on my buttocks! You will love the chicken bucket & the way the Sheik treats minorities & gay people! NYCFC! That’s the team for me!

        I’m going to follow whoever wins the Derby on Sunday afternoon! I better get over to Stub Hub and buy my tickets before they’re all gone.

        Since I always buy tickets for Cosmos home games I’m not used to buying tickets for matches that attract thousands and thousands of fans. Will I be able to get into Red Bull Arena?

        I hope so! I bet it’s really cool to attend a football match where more that 1,500 show up. Can’t wait!!!

          No need to worry about that. Most of our tickets are bought by ticket brokers and don’t sell on the secondary market. So you can get them for half price on groupon. There will be 18k in the stadium but we will announce a sellout due to the unused tickets. That’s how we roll in NFL Soccer. Come by early and you can help Sunil massage my feet! What a treat!
