ROSTER UPDATES: 5 players so far, more coming soon
So far, SD Loyal has announced four player signings. With SD Loyal’s open tryouts concluded, more player signings are sure to come very soon. The roster will be finalized over the next month as the coaching staff begins training and preseason matches.
The first signing was San Diego native “Sal” Zizzo
Signing #2: Emrah Klimenta
Signing #3: San Diego Native Eric Avila
Signing #4: Irvin Raul Parra
Signing #5: “Joe” Greenspan
Greenspan will anchor the back line for SD Loyal. He will also be an aerial threat on set pieces up top. The United States Naval Academy graduate was named the 2019 USL Championship Defender of the Year. Pittsburg Riverhounds fans are sad to see him go, that’s for sure.
