Rapids sign goalkeeper Ian Joyce

Pro has played for Watford, joined Rapids in February

The
Colorado Rapids announced today the signing of goalkeeper Ian Joyce. Per
club and league policies, financial terms of the transaction were not
disclosed.

Joyce will be added to the club’s senior roster pending receipt of
his International Transfer Certificate (ITC). He is expected to join the
team this week during the club’s preseason training in London, England.

The Rapids also announced several other roster moves, as the club
released forward Facundo Diz and did not offer a contract to 2010 third
round MLS SuperDraft pick defender Chad Borak.

The 24-year old goalkeeper and Seton Hall University product has
played his entire professional career in England since joining Grays
Athletic FC in 2007, then moving to Watford and most recently with
Southend United. Joyce spent a brief trial stint with Colorado this
preseason in February before signing with the club.
