Revolution bring back Dorman

The New England Revolution have re-signed Welsh midfielder Andy Dorman, re-uniting him with the club five years after he left Major League Soccer to ply his trade in Europe.

Dorman, 30, spent four seasons with the Revs, from 2004 to 2007, and played on three MLS Cup finalists from 2005 to 2007. He was also a part of New England’s U.S. Open Cup-winning side in 2007.

Dorman left MLS after the 2007 season to sign with Scottish club St. Mirren, where he stayed for parts of three years before joining English side Crystal Palace for two seasons.

Dorman joins a crowded New England midfield that includes Lee Nguyen, Benny Feilhaber, Kelyn Rowe, Juan Toja and Diego Fagundez.


  1. He used to be an interesting Revs player back in their glory days. But he’s 30 and has been most recently playing for Bristol Rovers on loan, at the bottom of the League pyramid, ie, League Two.

  2. I really liked Dorman during his time with NER, but I am afraid the league and level of play has moved on. Not sure how big of an impact he’ll have. Crazier stuff has happened though. I guess we will see. Hope this works out, for Rev fans.

  3. Solid player when he was with the revolution but who knows where he’s at now. This is a crowded midfield now between Dorman, Rowe, Nguyen, Guy, Toja, Fagundez, Gavin and Feilhaber. You have to imagine someone’s on their way out.

    Guess that means is time to start guessing where Benny will play next season. Anyone want to bet he somehow ends up in LA and lights up the league?

    • Starting to question Heaps’ long term vision. Where is he going with this? Guys like Dorman and Guy bring neither the bite, imagination, nor skill to be influential in today’s MLS game. If there is a midfielder addition that the Revs would benefit from, it’s a younger, quicker, and more skilled version of Clyde Simms – i.e. a great defensive midfielder. No one on the current squad is it (unless I misunderstand Gavin’s game).

      And riding Benny out of town seems absurd, even if he’s not a defensive rock, as in the right system, he could do amazing things.
