Bermudan Freddy Hall, who has been in camp as a trialist for the past three weeks and played in the recent friendly against Liverpool, is now officially available for selection. Teenager Quillan Roberts was promoted from the Academy to back up Milos Kocic after Stefan Frei broke his leg in training. But the club was never fully comfortable in having a teenager being option No. 2 in goal. Freddy Hall “Freddy brings depth to our goalkeeping position and has many qualities that we like to see at this position,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Director of Soccer Operations Paul Mariner in a release issued by the club. “He performed well during his trial period with our club and played well against Liverpool.
