[USL PRO 2014 COUNTDOWN] OKC Energy FC signed Dane Philip Lund, who spent the 2013 MLS season with the Seattle Sounders, Englishman Paul Wyatt out of James Madison University and veteran Wilmington Hammerheads defender Gareth Evans for its inaugural USL PRO campaign.

Lund, a central midfielder, played in one game for the Sounders in 2013.

“When Philip first signed with Seattle Sounders, I was very happy for him,” said fellow Dane Jimmy Nielsen, named Energy FC head coach after retiring from Sporting Kansas City. “I have followed his career in the Danish league. He is a young and hungry player, and he's the kind of player who can make a difference in games. When he was released from the MLS, I didn't have to think twice about signing him to our team. He will be a great addition.”

Wyatt, was a four-year starter at JMU, registering 28 goals and 11 assists in 73 games. Evans, who began his career in the Welsh Premier League, played for the Hammerheads for the last three seasons. He also played with the Carolina RailHawks, Austin Aztex and Real Maryland.
