2014 USL Pro: Richmond Kickers Preview, Depth Chart & Key Players

2013: 15-10-1 (1st in regular season – Semi-Finals)

Head Coach: Leigh Cowlishaw

MLS AffiliationDC United
Key Returners: Nate Robinson M (25gp 4g 8a), Sascha Gorres D (21gp 4a), Luke Vercollone M (24gp 5g 1a), William Yomby D (26gp 1g)  

Key Newcomers: George Davis M (24gp 8g 4a with LA Blues), Joe Willis G, Collin Martin M, Christiano Francois F (all on loan from DC United)
Analysis: Richmond really took advantage of their relationship with DC United last season with keeper Andrew Dykstra being voted as the top keeper in the league. He’s been replaced by another United loanee Joe Willis who has already played 23 MLS games. Other DC United prospects to be loaned to the club include top draft pick Steve Birnbaum and Canadian Kyle Porter. The Kickers will also miss other loanees Brian Ownby and Ngweyna’s move to Pittsburgh. Richmond still have a number of USL Pro quality players but will need goals from Matthew Delicate and loanee Francois to repeat as regular season champions.

2014 Prediction: 3rd place
