The Lynx also announced the return of Rick Titus for the 2005 season. Titus begins his third stint with the Lynx after beginning his A-League career with Toronto in 1997 and returning for one match in 2004. A former A-League Defender of the Year (Vancouver 2001) and A-League Champion (Charleston 2003), Titus will provide leadership and experience for the young Lynx roster. In addition to his A-League accomplishments, Titus also enjoyed success with the Colorado Rapids of MLS and the Trinidad and Tobago National Team.
The 2005 Lynx roster will also feature several new players: Robin Hart, Niels Dekker, and Huffman Eja-Tabe. Of the talented trio of young Canadians presented at the conference, only Hart has experience in the USL First Division having played with Edmonton FC in 2004. A former member of the Ottawa Wizards of the CPSL, coached by Hubert Busby Jr., Hart is a versatile wide player with good speed and skill. The Victoria, British Columbia native appeared in 13 matches with Edmonton FC last season.
