Roster moves: Sounders sign keeper Meredith, put Seamon on injured list

The Sounders needed a third goalkeeper after Terry Boss was ruled out for the season. They found one in Bremerton as Kitsap Pumas’ Bryan Meredith signed today. Meanwhile midfielder / defender Mike Seamon was put on the injured list.

Seattle Sounders FC roster moves:

RENTON, WASH. – Seattle Sounders FC has signed goalkeeper Bryan Meredith, the club announced today. Meredith was Seattle’s fourth pick and 29th overall in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft. Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms were not disclosed.

A native of New Jersey, Meredith, 22, was a three-year starter at Monmouth University. He trained with Seattle throughout the 2011 preseason and started in net for the nearby USL Premier Development League champions Kitsap Pumas. Meredith started Kitsap’s 2-1 loss to Sounders FC in the U.S. Open Cup third round on June 28.

“We are excited to add Bryan Meredith to our roster,” said Sounders FC technical director Chris Henderson. “He will join Kasey Keller and Josh Ford in the nets for us. Bryan had a solid season this year in the USL and had some fantastic games. We expect he will continue to progress under goalkeeper coach Tom Dutra.”

Meredith was named to the 2010 All-Northeast Conference first team and NEC Tournament MVP as a senior at Monmouth. As a junior, Meredith led the nation in goals against average (0.306) and also led all NEC keepers with 12 shutouts.

Seattle travels to Costa Rica for a CONCACAF Champions League group stage match against CS Herediano at 7 p.m. PT on Wednesday night. Sounders FC then returns home for an MLS match against D.C. United on Saturday night. First kick is 6 p.m. PT on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field.
