USA TODAY Sports

Brian Holt will be the team's third goalkeeper behind Zac MacMath and Andre Blake.

Earlier today the Philadelphia Union announced that they offered a contract to former Reading and Harrisburg City goalkeeper Brian Holt.  Holt was a trialist with the team this preseason.

In a press release from the club John Hackworth said, "Brian is a tremendous competitor and we have seen a lot of his dedication, hard work, and resolve while he trained with us last year.  We're really happy to have him as part of our team going into the season.

Holt, 25, had a decorated college career at Creighton University.  In 2011, his senior year, Holt set an NCAA record .208 goals against average and notched 19 shutouts in 24 starts.  That excellence between the posts earned Holt a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist honor.  That same year Holt had 16 starts for Union affiliate Reading United and finished as a Premier Developmental League (PDL) Rookie of the Year finalist and all-Eastern Conference selection.

Holt also made one appearance with the Harrisburg City Islanders in 2012.  He spent much of last year training with the Union. Holt will most likely e the team's third goalkeeper behind Zac MacMath and Andre Blake.
