Josh Gardner, in undated picture

The RailHawks announced today the signing of 26-year-old midfielder Josh Gardner, a veteran of three journeyman seasons with the Los Angeles Galaxy and two considerably more productive seasons with the Seattle Sounders. With the latter squad over the last two seasons, Gardner scored 7 goals in 52 appearances, playing on the left side.

We asked the RailHawks if there are any updates on last year’s midfield mainstays of Matt Watson, Martin Nuñez and Santiago Fusilier and were told to “stay tuned.”

Here’s Gardner’s stats, copied from his wikipedia page.
