Philadelphia Union announced today that the club has loaned two players to the team's official USL PRO affiliate, Harrisburg City Islanders, for the 2014 USL PRO season.
Midfielders Cristhian Hernandez and Jimmy McLaughlin will join the City Islanders ahead of their USL PRO season-opening match on April 5 against the Wilmington Hammerheads. Philadelphia Union will have the option to recall any of the two players during the loan period.
"Jimmy and Cristhian are still young professionals who need to play in meaningful matches", Team Manager John Hackworth said. "We think that going to our USL affiliate Harrisburg City Islanders gives them an opportunity to continue their development under coach Becher while playing in real games and helping the team this season."
