Loudoun United announced the addition of midfielder Drew Skundrich earlier today. The 25-year-old midfielder spent the last two seasons with Sacramento Republic FC, appearing in 49 games (starting 42), registering four goals and five assists. Skundrich’s first professional season was with the Philadelphia Union II, where he appeared in 28 games (starting 15) and scoring two goals, following a four-year collegiate career at Stanford where he was team captain his junior and senior seasons.
Skundrich, the the fourth signing for Loudoun, is married to Washington Spirit (and United States) midfielder Andi Sullivan. The pair met at Stanford and eventually married in 2019 (coincidentally enough not far from Segra Field, where the two will be appearing at various times this season).

Skundrich brings experienced two-way midfield play to a Loudoun midfield that was in need of some last season; Elvis Amoh appeared in the role frequently, but the other half of the pairing was usually a mix of Jeremy Garay, Nelson Martinez or Brandon Williamson, all of whom were playing in their first full pro seasons.
