This week United signed long-coveted forward Tony Sennah from the USISL and it is pursuing English international Chris Waddle, though that remains a long shot.
He got a red card in the first game, forcing the team to bring in USISL keeper Aidan Heaney, who is now firmly entrenched as the starter.
Around town: The San Fernando Valley Golden Eagles of the USISL
(that would be the United Systems of Independent Soccer Leagues) opens its season tonight against the Arizona Phoenix (not to be confused with Phoenix, Arizona) tonight at 7 at Valley College.
