D.C. United announced the signing of goalkeeper Tally Hall on Friday, adding the MLS veteran keeper to a corp of keepers currently lacking MLS experience. With Bill Hamid and Andrew Dykstra both out due to long-term injuries, United have leaned on Travis Worra - who has 4 games of MLS experience - with Charlie Horton, a recent signing with no first team experience, his backup.
As first reported by Black and Red United, Hall was seen at recent United training sessions, with the keeper looking to join a roster since his release from Orlando City SC this past offseason. Hall spent the majority of his seven year MLS career with the Houston Dynamo, becoming their full time starter in 2011. From there, Hall started 101 of 102 possible MLS games across three seasons for Houston. After moving on from Houston, Hall spent 2015 with Orlando City.
Hall has had his last two seasons end early due to knee injuries. In August 2014, Hall tore his ACL while with the Dynamo, who later traded him to Orlando. After rehabbing and becoming Orlando's starter last year - a development that saw OCSC trade Donovan Ricketts - Hall injured his knee late in the season against New York City FC, undergoing surgery before being released by the Lions.
