RSL keeps a critical part of their team

New, 1 comment

Oh the transfer window may be closed but RSL signed a new deal that may have a bigger impact than any of the new DP's.  They extended the contract of Garth Lagerwey, their GM until 2014, and while some of you may not know Garth or think that he has made a difference, well here is the difference he has made for RSL.

Since taking over RSL has played in 89 matches, the previous GM oversaw the team for 88 matches:

I think RSL's President Bill Manning summed it up best with this statement:

"Garth has been one of the major forces behind our successful rise on the field, which has also had a positive
effect on our overall business operation," said Manning. "He is talented, well thought out and in my opinion
one of the sharpest young minds in the game today. It was important to me and our ownership that we ensure
for our fans a perennial championship contender, and that we reward Garth for his success and guarantee
consistency in the front office."

I say congrats to Garth on the new deal and look forward to him continuing to do good things for Real Salt Lake.
