Earlier this week, Sacramento Republic FC announced they have signed a goalkeeper on loan for the remainder of the 2020 USL Championship season in Brady Scott, from Nashville SC.
The 21-year-old was a backup at Nashville, having signed there ahead of this most wild of seasons. Prior to that, he spent three years in the ranks of German side FC Köln, making regular appearances there for the second team.
This move is a homecoming of sorts, as the U.S. U-20 international is a native of Petaluma.
“Brady is a top-quality goalkeeper and we’re thrilled to have him back in his native Northern California,” said Republic FC general manager Todd Dunivant in a team statement. “He is a welcome addition to our talented group of goalkeepers and we look forward to integrating him into the club.”
Scott is expected to be the primary backup to Rafael Diaz, who himself was the backup until Adam Grinwis suffered a torn ACL earlier this summer. Diaz has been impressive as starter, and Sacramento head coach Mark Briggs said he will remain the starter given his strong form since taking the No. 1 slot. Still, it’s good to have insurance and Scott will look to get ready in case he’s needed for Sac Republic this season.
