The Fire added some depth to what is probably their thinnest position today by signing PDL alum Brendan King to the roster. The 22 year old outside midfielder was a second round Superdraft selection of the Portland Timbers in 2012 but played abroad last season. He made seven appearances for Norwegian Division One side Alta IF and played in one match for Bray Wanderers AFC in Ireland. Scouting reports describe the Notre Dame standout and Naperville native as a speedy right footed player who prefers to play on the left but can be utilized on either side.
Here’s some background info on how King was acquired. King will join the club for phase 2 of training camp in California next week.
