Hammerheads Receive Stuver on Loan from Crew

Wilmington Hammerheads Press Release

Wilmington, NC – Wilmington Hammerheads FC is pleased to announce a loan agreement with Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew that sends Crew goalkeeper Brad Stuver to Wilmington for the remainder of the 2014 USL PRO season. Per Major League Soccer, USL PRO and club policy, further terms of the loan were not disclosed. 

"We are really excited to have Brad in Wilmington. I saw him as a college player and have tracked his progress and feel confident he will be a very important addition to our team as we make our push towards the end of the season," said Hammerheads Technical Director Carson Porter. "Beyond his soccer talents, trusted colleagues speak very highly of his character and professionalism, things that are equally important to our organization."

Brad joins the Hammerheads in an important time and will be relied upon right away, along with veteran Matt Glaeser, to take on the goalkeeper duties for the club.  Quillan Roberts, who joined the Hammerheads this season by way of a loan agreement with MLS partner Toronto FC, has been recalled by Toronto for the remainder of the season. The recall of Roberts to Toronto is in response to the departure of goalkeeper Julio Ceasar from Toronto FC. Ceasar, a Brazilian who played every minute of this summer's World Cup campaign for his home country, re-joined English Premier League Club Queens Park Rangers, who had loaned him to Toronto in the run up to the World Cup. 

Stuver was selected 23rd overall by Montreal and was the first goalkeeper taken in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft. He spent the 2013 season as an MLS pool goalkeeper, making appearances for the Crew, New England Revolution, Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA.

"This is a good opportunity for Brad to gain valuable minutes and match experience to continue on his developmental path," said Columbus Crew Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter.

"We want to become a trusted place where players can come and improve and leave better than when they arrive. Having a player like Brad is a positive move for us that strengthens our team and allows our fans to see a goalkeeper with a bright future," said Porter. "Our goal is to give him the environment and the challenges he needs to improve, while he also helps in our end of the season push."
