After coming up empty in their search for a forward during the transfer window the technical staff has been plying the free transfer market in hopes of finding some help. With plenty of international spots spots available and only three strikers on the roster it was just a matter of time before they found someone.
That someone comes in the person of former Toronto FC striker Robert Earnshaw. The Welsh international scored 8 goals in 26 games for TFC in MLS last season before having his option declined last winter. He then signed a short term deal with Blackpool in the Championship, England's second division, but only appeared in one match.
Earnshaw isn't going to be the impact player the team has been lacking but he is a considerably better option than Matt Fondy. He will be available for selection pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate. Earnshaw is 33 years old and should challenge Quincy Amarikwa for starts once he is fit and available.
