RailHawks versus Revolution pregame notes

Jarrett at Triangle Soccer Fanatics has done the work for us: He's secured the match day roster and located some news therein:

First, there are now 25 players listed on the RailHawks roster (which doesn't include confirmed signing Matt Watson, who is still playing for his indoor team in Baltimore). Officially, the team has 20 players, but three new names have slipped out in recent press releases, including backup keeper Brian Levey, evidently returning for another year; Devon McKenney, a defender who played last year for the Columbus Crew reserves; and Nate Norman, who played for Notre Dame before spending time with the Chicago Fire and the Charleston Battery and who, most recently, was coaching high schoolers in Michigan.

Then there are some names that haven't emerged from official sources before now—and we're not sure if they're under contract. Most intriguingly, there's a veteran striker named Gavin Glinton, a native of Turks and Caicos Island whose career has taken him to stints with the LA Galaxy, Dallas Burn, the USL's Charleston Battery and, last season, the San Jose Earthquakes. His most productive stop was two seasons in Charleston, 2005-06, in which he scored 13 times in 26 appearances. 

There's also a third keeper, Caleb Patterson, a 21-year-old native of Australia who apparently spent last year training with Red Bull New York. 

The final new name is defender and Wake Forest grad Amir Lowery, who caught Triangle Offense's eye with his assured play when we visited training camp a month ago.

The weather will continue to be miserable, but we couldn't be more excited about tonight's game at WakeMed. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
