 Frankie Sanfilippo

In what may be a harbinger of the changing face of the RailHawks, the Charleston Battery announced today that it had signed Frankie Sanfilippo, a two-year ’Hawks veteran, to a three-year deal. 

The 27-year-old defender scored one goal in 51 games for the RailHawks. Prior to his stint in Cary, he played for the Rochester Rhinos and the now-defunct Syracuse Salty Dogs.

Sanfilippo never lost to his new employer during his RailHawks tenure.

The USL announcement is here.

UPDATE 6:13 P.M.:  In response to a request for comment, the RailHawks released this statement from president Brian Wellman:

Frankie has been a tremendous part of the RailHawks organization these past two years. He is a phenomenal leader both on and off the field and though we are sad to see him go we wish him all the best in his future at the Battery.
