D.C. United and former Development Academy goalkeeper Bill Hamid looks to stay in fighting form during MLS offseason by training in England with Premier League Club West Bromwich Albion. Hamid departed for the UK last night and could begin his ten-day spell with West Brom as early as today. The imposing 'keeper will return to the U.S. on Nov. 7.
Now a starter in the MLS, Hamid became the first academy player to sign for D.C. United as well as the youngest keeper to win a league game in the MLS. He has been on the Men's National Team roster three times this year as Tim Howard's backup but has yet to earn his first cap.
