The Seattle Sounders FC has made two new additions to their team.
The Seattle Sounders FC has acquired Alex Caskey in a trade with the USL’s Charleston Battery. He was drafted by the Sounders in the third round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, but decided to play last season with Charleston.
“Alex is more of an attacking midfielder than a defensive midfielder,” Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. “He has very quick feet, and he is a player that works very hard but also has that nose for goal and looks to get forward.”
With the Battery, he had one goal in 19 appearances. He also played for the Atlanta Blackhawks in the USL Premier Development League for 2009 and 2010, where he had a goal in 22 games.
He was a two-time captain during his Davidson College career. There, he had 19 goals and 15 assists for 53 points, while starting all 76 contests.
“Andy is a midfielder who has very good vision, good striker of the ball,” Schmid said. “His work rate is very good and he’s got some size so he’s good in the air. He can play in this league and make an impact.”
Rose comes to the Sounders FC after spending two seasons with Ventura County Fusion. With the Fusion, he had eight goals in 18 games.
He also spent a season with the Seattle Wolves in 2009, where he didn’t score in eight games.
