Irish forward Cillian Sheridan on trial with Sounders FC

UPDATE: 2:45 p.m. — Myron Samuel, an 18-year-old forward/midfield from St. Vincent and Grenadines, is also on trial and is expected to suit up tonight. Here is the full report on SoundersFC.com

Rumors began floating around earlier today linking Cillian Sheridan, a 6-foot-5 Irish forward, to Sounders FC. The team has confirmed that the 22-year-old is indeed on trial and will likely suit up for tonight’s Reserve League game against Vancouver (7 p.m. kickoff at Starfire).

Sheridan most recently played for CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria. I believe he came to Seattle last year with Celtic for a summer friendly at Qwest Field.

Other trialists are also expected to suit up for Sounders FC tonight. You can also anticipate that rumors will continue to heat up the closer we get the transfer window opening on July 15. I’ll have more from Starfire later.
