Revs acquire 'keeper Warren from D.C.

The New England Revolution announced Thursday that the team
has acquired goalkeeper Doug Warren from D.C. United in exchange for New
England's natural 4th round pick in the 2006 MLS SuperDraft.

Warren joined the Revolution roster from July through November of the 2004
season after Revs goalkeeper Adin Brown was injured. Warren was called in
from Major League Soccer's emergency goalkeepers pool to the Revolution
roster and he backed up Matt Reis for the remainder of the season without
making any game appearances for the Revs.

"We're pleased to have Doug officially in the Revolution fold," said
Technical Director Joe Cummings. "He's a quality keeper and a good team guy
who understands the Revolution coaching staff's approach to game
preparation. This is an important roster move for the club."

Warren, who played collegiate soccer at Clemson and Indiana, played for
United in 2003 and 2004. In 2003, Warren appeared in six games for D.C.,
starting five of those. He posted a record of 0-3-2 record with a 1.34 goals
against average. In the 2003 postseason, Warren started two matches, both
losses, and made eight saves, giving up four goals. Warren started one game for
D.C. United last season before joining the Revolution in July.
