Welcome to Our New Striker

Hello Rapids fans,

I just want to let you all know that we executed a trade today with the Columbus Crew for forward/midfielder Pat Noonan.

We had been looking to bolster our front line for some time now and have finally been able to do that with this trade. The great thing about Pat he fits a need, can play multiple positions, is only 28 and is good in the locker room. For us it was a great fit.

There is no doubting Pat's abilities and productivity over the years. He has almost a goal and assist every 3 games over the course of his career. Also, he has a great deal of experience with successful teams in this league and we will be counting on him to bring this to the table as we build upon our good start to the season this far.

Pat has had some injury history in the past and we did our due diligence in gaining background on these issues and felt really comfortable that there were no long term effects that would affect his performance. We are excited to get him started and our fans should be looking forward to seeing him as an exciting attacking option for the Rapids for years to come.

Please be on the look out for more exciting news in the near future...

Good Job Bravo! I think this was a great pick up for the team and can't wait to see how quick Pat gains some chemistry with the team.
