Sounders FC set to sign Andrew Weber, Jordan Morris honored (Wednesday notes)

Seattle Sounders FC LogoHere are a few quick notes from today…

*     *     *

— The Sounders are expected to sign goalkeeper Andrew Weber, last year’s backup, in the next couple days. Seattle has injuries to both current backups, as Marcus Hahnemann strained his hamstring in a reserve game Sunday and Josh Ford is recovering from knee surgery. Weber has been playing with Phoenix FC of the USL PRO this season.

— Sounders FC academy forward Jordan Morris has been named U-17/18 National Player of the Year by U.S. Soccer. The Mercer Island native, who recently trained with the U-20 national team, has 27 goals in 28 regular-season games and led the Sounders to their first Finals Week (July 14-20 in Houston).

— Minority owner Drew Carey donated $5,000 to charity for a misspelled jersey worn by Chris Wondolowski. The forward scored a hat trick for the U.S. in a 6-1 win over Belize on Tuesday, though the name on his jersey read: “Wondowlowski.” Carey told USsoccer.com that he “thought it would be a good souvenir.”

— Fans are encouraged to come to Thursday’s Gold Cup games early as handheld metal detectors will be in use again. The new security measure caused massive delays for fans entering the stadium for Sounders FC’s home game against D.C. United last, but club management vowed to improve the process.
