Revs re-sign defenders Alston and Barnes
The Revolution announced Thursday that they had re-signed three players: defender Kevin Alston, defender Darrius Barnes and goalkeeper Luis Soffner. Per club policy, further terms of the deals are not being disclosed.
“We’re pleased that we have been able to bring Kevin, Darrius, and Luis back to the Revolution,” General Manager Michael Burns said. “Each player could have chosen a different path but wanted to return, which was important to us. Both Kevin and Darrius have been valuable members of this Club for the past five seasons and are reliable, proven veterans. They are both professional in the way they conduct themselves both on and off the field. In the case of Luis, we believe he has the potential to become a solid goalkeeper in MLS and look forward to his continued development.”
