Ex-RailHawk update: Chris McClellan now backup to league's best goalie

Jarrett of trisoccerfan.com spotted this one: Chris McClellan, the two-year starting goalkeeper who left town to make room for new goal management, has signed with the Puerto Rico Islanders.

The Islanders, of course, are the pride of the USL-1, having marched to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League—where they are presently ahead of Cruz Azul 2:0 after the first leg. Colin Clarke's side is also home to ex-RailHawks Jonathan Steele (who was last year's league MVP with the Islanders) and Martin Nuñez (who was a finalist for league rookie of the year with the RailHawks). 

However, don't expect to see too many minutes from McClellan: The Islanders have one of the better keepers in North America and the Caribbean in Bill Gaudette, who was last year's USL-1 goalie of the year.
