PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Riverhounds announced on Tuesday the signing of goalkeeper Trey Mitchell to a one-year deal with a club option for the 2018 season, pending league and federation approval.
Mitchell, 25, joins the Hounds after spending this past season as a MLS League Pool Goalkeeper and training with Sporting Kansas City. He has served as a League Pool Goalkeeper since 2015, including making an appearance for the Colorado Rapids in the 2016 U.S. Open Cup, as well as showings with D.C. United, Orlando City B, the Philadelphia Union and Sporting in 2016.
"Trey gives us another goalkeeper very capable of being a No. 1 option," said Riverhounds Head Coach Dave Brandt. "He's a good goalkeeper that is athletic, strong in the box, and a good shot stopper, who also really has a good bit of high-level experience."
A native of Alta Loma, Calif., Mitchell competed in the PDL for the Ventura County Fusion in addition to competing for first Citrus College for two years and then Division II side Cal State Dominguez Hills. With Citrus, Mitchell racked up 81 saves and a 2.09 goals-against average. His time with Cal State was more successful, as he made 20 appearances, notching 71 saves for a 0.85 GAA.
With the addition of Mitchell, the Hounds now have 22 players officially under contract for the 2017 season. He is the second goalkeeper to be signed by the club this offseason, joining Keasel Broome, who was added this past November.
