The Real Monarchs’ explosive young goalkeeper is getting his shot with the first team.
Real Salt Lake has signed Connor Sparrow, 23, the team announced Monday. The move comes after former third-string goalkeeper Lalo Fernandez signed with the Liga MX club Tigres UANL last week and before the MLS roster freeze takes effect Friday evening.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to join Real Salt Lake,” Sparrow said in a team release. “The last two years have given me the opportunity to play in some high-quality, competitive matches. That’s helped my progression and it’s been really rewarding to have the success we’ve had with the Monarchs this season.”
