Commerce City, Colo. - Former New England Revolution midfielder Luke Vercollone (pictured above) began a trial with the Colorado Rapids today, as did Seedy Bah, a forward from The Gambia who most recently played for the Charlston Battery.

Both players participated in the team's training session on Thurday and could be options to travel with the team to Texas next week for the Rapids final Reserve League match of the season. The Rapids Reserves are 5-2-1 in the Central Conference and play their final match on Tuesday evening at FC Dallas.

After attending Setan Hall University, Vercollone was drafted by the Columbus Crew in 2004 but ended up signing with the New England Revolution. The now 30-year-old made five appearances in two season for the Revs before being released, and has since played for the Charleston Battery and most recently with the Richmond Kickers.

Bah, 20, grew up in Bakau, Gambia and has represented Gambia at the U17 level. He was also once part of the Colorado Rush youth system.

The two joined Anton Peterlin and Jamie Gilbert, who remain on trial with the Rapids after arriving several weeks ago.
