The Galaxy welcomed a new face to training on Wednesday morning as Trinidad and Tobago National Team midfielder Chris Birchall practiced with the club.
The 25-year old currently plays for English League One side Brighton & Hove Albion after having previous stints with Port Vale and Coventry City.
He is a regular with the Trinidad & Tobago National Team, having appeared more than 30 times, including in their recent 3-0 defeat to the U.S. in Nashville, Tenn. on April 1. He started all three of the country's games at the 2006 FIFA World Cup as T&T went out in the first round with a 0-2-1 record.
Birchall will wear the #33 shirt while training with the club. That shirt was last worn in preseason by Josh Boateng, with Celestine Babayaro and Clint Mathis having also worn the shirt recently.
Here are a few more shots of Mr. Birchall's first day training with the Galaxy and be sure to check back tomorrow as we get to know him a little bit more in the year's debut episode of This Week Inside the Galaxy.
