Familiar faces resurface across USL

Many former RSL and Monarch players will be active in USL during the 2018 season

MLS: Real Salt Lake at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

As the Monarchs enter their fourth season in 2018, they are beginning to have a large number of former players active with other teams in the USL. In addition, a number of former Real Salt Lake players have also signed with USL sides in an effort to continue or revitalize their careers.

As play in USL is almost entirely within conference until the playoffs, the teams have been divided by conference with those in the Western Conference listed first. I have also included the date of their match at Zions Bank Stadium for fans who want to re-establish old friendships.

Fresno FC (May 12 & June 26) - Kyle Reynish started in goal in the squad inagural game and played a full 90 minutes in the loss against Las Vegas Lights FC
