It's that time of year again. The time where players from the lower division teams start thinking about how they're are going to spend their off season and for some, how they are going to pay the car payment!
For a few Battery players that question is already answered, at least for a couple more months.
The past week has seen several Battery players move to other teams. The terms of these signings are notoriously hard to find out about but here is what we know so far.
Battery forward, Lamar Neagle has signed with IFK Mariehamm of the Finnish 3rd division for the remainder of there season. IFK is currently second from the bottom of their table with six matches remaining. I imagine they need someone to score goals and Lamar has proven he can do that.
Battery midfielder and assistant coach Ian Fuller signed with the Austin Aztex of the USSF D2. Austin at the top of the table with Rochester and looking to win a championship. They have also brought in former Battery players, Randi Patterson and Yoshi from Crystal Palace Baltimore, which looks to have been off loaded by a sinking ship.
Also completing their loans with Charleston, Tim Melia returned to Real Salt Lake after the Champions match. Pierre-Rudolph Mayard returned to the Montreal Impact after the regular season was completed. Mayard has been getting a few minutes in the last couple Montreal matches. Hopefully someone sent Mayard, who was a big part in the Battery's success this season, his championship medal. He definitely deserved to be part of the group that won the Championship.
