The Houston Dynamo have announced they've brought in two international players on trial.
Midfielder Lester Peltier, a Trinidad & Tobago international, and forward Steven Morrissey, currently the leading scorer in Jamaica will join the club's training on Monday. Both players could be included on the roster for the friendly against FC Dallas on February 12th, depending on their performance in training during the week.
Here are quick bios for the two players from HoustonDynamo.com:
Lester Peltier, 22, has nine caps and one goal for Trinidad & Tobago despite his young age. He played at San Juan Jabloteh from 2006-09 and made his full international debut in January 2008 at the age of 19 after a decorated youth international career. Peltier was reportedly set to transfer to English Premier League club Portsmouth in 2007, but he could not obtain a work permit. He currently plays for Ma Pau SC in Trinidad & Tobago.
Steven Morrissey, 24, has netted 10 goals this season to lead the Jamaican Premier League. He has yet to earn his first cap for the full Jamaican national team, but he represented his country at the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Cup and the 2005 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. He is currently in the midst of the Premier League schedule in Jamaica with Portmore United.
Both Morrissey and Peliter will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Jamaican Lovel Palmer who signed with the club after two trails last year. These are expected to be the first of several trialists joining the club throughout the pre-season.
