We hardly knew you

Real Salt Lake released three more trialists this afternoon reducing the team’s roster to 28 players with the season opener just over three weeks away on March 10.

RSL coach Jason Kreis parted ways with defenders Samir Bengelloun and Wes Knight, along with midfielder Lewis Neal.

Bengelloun was a left back from France. Knight was a defender who appeared in 12 games with Vancouver last year before being released on Aug. 31. Neal was a defender from England, who played last year with Orlando City in the USL Pro League.

Several more cuts are expected prior to the season opener, cuts that will likely be made when the team heads back to Arizona next week for two more weeks of training camp.

RSL has also invited two additional defenders to training camp, Kasali Casal from England and Lance Laing from Jamaica.
