Sporting KC signs defender Seth Sinovic

Sporting Kansas City announced Tuesday the signing of defender Seth Sinovic.

“He's played games in the league, and he has some good experience,” Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes said. “We're glad to have him here, and he'll provide us with some needed depth.”

The 24-year-old entered Major League Soccer in 2010 as a second-round MLS SuperDraft selection. Sinovic appeared in 20 regular season matches, making 18 starts, for the New England Revolution as a rookie, and also earned four appearances in the 2010 SuperLiga.

A Leawood, Kansas native, Sinovic compiled 42 goals and 35 assists at Rockhurst High School from 2001-2005 and appeared in two state championships with the Hawklets. He was a First-Team All-State selection and Western Missouri Offensive Player of the Year during his senior season, when he scored 25 goals and added 15 assists.

Sinovic then walked on at Creighton University, recording eight goals and 15 assists in 77 appearances while leading the Bluejays defense to 37 shutouts in his four seasons while playing primarily at left back. A team captain in 2008 and 2009, Sinovic was a two-time First-Team All-Missouri Valley Conference and NSCAA All-Midwest Region honoree.

Sporting Kansas City travels to face the first-place Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. CT at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The match will be shown live on KSMO-TV, beginning with a 30-minute pre-game show.
