Loudoun United (D.C. United’s USL affiliate) has signed it’s first two players in team history today. 26 year old local goalkeeper Calle Wilson, and 18 year old midfielder Omar Milton Campos.
Goalkeeper Calle Brown, is originally from Leesburg, Virginia and has extensive ties to the area. Last season, with the USL team Seattle Sounders 2, Brown made 70 saves, had 2 clean sheets, and conceded 40 goals over 21 games. It seems likely that the local goalkeeper will be eventually competing for the starting job with goalkeeper Earl Edwards jr., who is currently training with D.C. United.
Here is an older highlight reel from 2015 that might be interesting to checkout, of his time at the University of Virginia:
The next signing, the much younger Omar Milton Campos, is an El Salvadoran youth international player. He represented El Salvador at the U-18, U-19, and U-20 levels. This signing is a bit more interesting because he is only 18 years old and seems like a longer term development oppurutunity for D.C. United. Milton is coming from C.D. Dragón in the top division of El Salvadoran soccer. This seems like the very beginning of what could become a huge part of the development pipeline into D.C. United.
It’s great to finally see the signings officially start, and it they will likely start to flow in now that it has started and the season starting relatively soon!
