The Philadelphia Union announced that they have also signed Ken Tribbett to the team. The 6-foot-2 center back has impressed in camp according to Union manager Jim Curtin, and it made sense that the Union brought him in from Bethlehem Steel. While he will most likely be a depth option, the Union have historically never had depth at center back so this signing should prove to be a good one.
In the Union's press release, Sporting Director Earnie Stewart had this to say about Tribbett:
"We have always valued Ken’s ability and potential, which was a prime reason we were so adamant to keep him within our organization," Philadelphia Union Sporting Director Earnie Stewart said. "However, once camp started, Ken displayed a next level in his game and it became evident he needed to be a permanent fixture with our first team. We’re delighted with his progress and we believe in his ability to make an impact for our club this year."
Tribbett played his college ball with Drexel, leading the Dragons to an NCAA Tournament berth during his senior season while winning the Colonial Athletic Association title.
