Report: Kyle Reynish on trial with Atlanta United

The former RBNY back-up 'keeper has been spotted training with the MLS newcomer.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Doug Roberson reports former New York Red Bulls' back-up Kyle Reynish is one of two 'keepers spotted on trial at Atlanta United's preseason training camp.

The 33-year-old Reynish was on RBNY's MLS roster for the last two seasons. As the back-up to MLS Ironman Luis Robles, he didn't have much opportunity for playing time - indeed, he made no competitive appearances for the first team during his time with the Red Bulls.

Reynish was eligible for MLS free agency this off-season (as he was last off-season). A veteran back-up in MLS, Reynish is also the winner of the NASL's Golden Glove Award. He had a SoccerBowl-winning stint with New York Cosmos in 2013.

It isn't entirely clear why Atlanta has brought in Reynish and US national youth teamer Matias Reynares, since the club already has three rostered 'keepers and has also successfully concluded its chase for USMNT veteran Brad Guzan.

But if Atlanta has room for another goalkeeper (or, more likely, a thought about switching away from one of those it already has under contract), Reynish is a proven and reliable option for any MLS squad.
