The New England Revolution have apparently found their third goalkeeper as Trevor Spangenberg revealed via Twitter on Tuesday that he has signed a contract with the team.
Spangenberg, who began his trial in Casa Grande, AZ, was a preseason mainstay for Revolution. The Arizona native didn't play in any of the tuneups, but seemingly showed well enough in practice to earn a contract. Spangenberg beat out Georgetown product Tomas Gomez and current Fort Lauderdale Strikers netminder Joe Nasco, both of which also spent time on trial.
Spangenberg already has MLS experience as he was a member of Chivas USA in 2014. His lone appearance came against the Houston Dynamo on May 3 when he entered as a late substitute after fellow goalkeeper Tim Melia was issued a red card. Spangenberg was asked to stop the ensuing penalty kick, a task that proved too much for the rookie.
Before joining MLS, Spangenberg spent four years at Missouri State, finishing with a goals against average of 0.67.
