Two days after the league’s roster compliance deadline, the Revolution announced the signings of midfielder Michael Gamble and goalkeeper Matt Turner on Thursday.

Gamble, 22, played in all seven preseason matches for the Revolution after he was drafted in the second round of the 2016 SuperDraft out of Wake Forest. He scored a goal and added an assist for the Revolution during Desert Diamond Cup action.

With Gamble under contract, the Revolution have signed two of their three draft picks from January’s draft, including first-round selection Jordan McCrary.

Third-round pick Femi Hollinger-Janzen remains unsigned, but did travel with the club back to Foxborough following the conclusion of the preseason.

Turner, 21, joined the Revolution on a preseason trial during the club’s stay in Casa Grande, Ariz. He played collegiately at Fairfield University, where he collected 21 clean sheets and posted a 0.85 GAA during his junior and senior years. He did not see action during the club’s seven preseason contests.

Turner is slated to serve as the third-string keeper behind backup Brad Knighton and starter Bobby Shuttleworth.

The additions of Gamble and Turner bring the Revolution roster to 23, with five spots still open.
