Glenside’s Tony Donatelli and Harrisburg native and former Philadelphia Union player J.T. Noone have landed with USL PRO expansion side VSI Tampa Bay.

Harrisburg lists Swarthmore gent Morgan Langley and Palmyra’s Thomas Brandt, both formerly of the Philadelphia Union, on their 2013 rosters.

The USL PRO has named both Langley and Donatelli on their 2013 list of Players to Watch. Saying of Langley: “The 23-year-old had a solid 2012 season, recording three goals and adding two assists, and will be expected to increase those totals this season. The City Islanders appear primed to have a potent attack again this season, and with the departure of Brian Ombiji, Langley could be pivotal in creating chances for the club’s front-runners.”.

For Donatelli, they say “After winning two championships in the past year, USL PRO with Charleston and the MISL with Baltimore, Donatelli is part of an experienced group that will lead VSI in its inaugural season. The 28-year-old veteran had three goals and four assists for the Battery last summer, and will aim to increase both of those totals this summer.”

It looks like Philadelphia’s Pat Hannigan will be back with the NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions for 2013.

Russell Canouse and Zach Pfeffer, team mates on Hoffenheim’s U-19 team, were both called up to the US Men’s U-18 squad for three games in France and Romania. The US will face France today, March 19.
