NZ Website: Jake Gleeson Remains a Timber

It appears that Jake Gleeson who played for the Timbers U-23s will be the third goalkeeper signed for the MLS Timbers. In an article posted on the NZHerald website, Gleeson has apparently been given a contract.

"One will go to former New Zealand under-17 goalkeeper Jake Gleeson, who had an excellent season for Portland's title-winning reserve team last year. Gleeson will step up to the MLS squad and Wilkinson has challenged him to be their No 1 goalkeeper in two years."

I'd like to wish Jake all the best as he makes the jump to MLS. He is a great keeper with loads of potential. I couldn't be happier for all these U-23 Timbers moving onto brighter futures. Congratulations Jake. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
