MOST COMMENTED

[USSF DIVISION 2] Adin Brown, who was in goal for the 2002 MLS Cup finalist New England Revolution and later spent five years in Norway, has signed with the Portland Timbers for the 2010 season.

Brown, 31, underwent successful foot surgery earlier this month and is scheduled to join the club in mid-March and begin rehabilitation. He is expected to resume playing in mid-June.

“Adin is a tremendous goalkeeper, and while he is coming off surgery, the opportunity to sign him was too good to pass up,” said Gavin Wilkinson, Timbers head coach and general manager. “His ability and mentality have never been questioned, and when he is healthy he is one of the best goalkeepers in North America. We both feel this is an opportunity for him to focus on getting fit and healthy and reach those heights again. ”

Brown played in 69 games with Aalesund FK. The goalkeeper scored his first professional goal in 2007, netting the equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Rosenborg.

Brown earlier played five seasons in Major League Soccer with the Colorado Rapids (2000-01), Tampa Bay Mutiny (2001) and New England (2002-04).

He was the U.S. U-23 national team’s starting goalkeeper when it qualified for the 2000 Olympics.

The Timbers open their last D2 campaign on April 17. They will join MLS in 2011.
