Rangers Sign Two Trialists

The Swope Park Rangers continued to add to their roster ahead of their first season, signing two trialists from preseason camp. The team announced that they had signed central defender Amer Didic and defender/midfielder Tyler Pasher. The pair of Canadians have both represented their country in different competitions, Didic with the Canadian Interuniversity Sport team for the 2015 Summer Universiade. Pasher played with the Canadian U17 and U20 teams as well as being called into camp with the full national team in March of 2015.

Didic is 21 years old and comes to the Rangers straight out of the college ranks, coming from Baker University where he was a two time NAIA All American and scored 28 goals as a central defender for the Wildcats.

Pasher is also 21 and comes to KC with USL experience already having played with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds last season appearing 23 times and scoring two goals. He also has experience abroad, playing in Finland with PS Kemi. Before that he was a member of Toronto FC's academy.

Pasher and Didic becomes the third and fourth Canadians on Marc Dos Santos' roster, joining Mark Anthony Gonzalez and Johnny Grant.
