Irvine, CA – Goalkeeper Aaron Perez is a Blue once again. The San Dimas, CA native has been signed by the newly rebranded Orange County Blues FC
Perez, 27, played with the Los Angeles Blues during the 2013 season, recording six saves in four appearances.

The new players are all talented, smart and amazing guys, and I am very blessed to be a part of this journey.” said Perez about his recent signing, this time with the Orange County Blues.
