Reds board up back with Emory

Emory, emery... whatever. "Board" yet?

With a few roster spots still remaining and with the sudden departure of Geovanny Caicedo creating a (bigger) hole in their defence, Toronto FC have signed American defender Logan Emory. The 24-year old, who has been trialing with TFC this spring, has spent the large chunk of his pro career in the USL with Puerto Rico Islanders where he made 51 appearances.
There is promise in the Idaho native who claims that "no one will work harder than him". He bravely passed up the chance at a near certain job with Orlando City in order to roll the dice and join TFC's pre-season camp, burning many a bridge with Orlando in doing so. The mop-topped Emory also endeared himself with grumpy men like us who like proper football shirt numbers by taking # 2 with TFC. Only time will tell where Logan "The Board" Emory fits on The Reds' defensive depth chart but he won't likely be the last new signing before the club's opening MLS match this coming Saturday.
