Los Angeles signs five players

The Los Angeles Galaxy re-signed forward Adam Cristman, defender Sean Franklin, and midfielder Bryan Jordan, and also signed goalkeeper Nick Noble and forward Pat Noonan on Friday.

Cristman started the Major League Soccer Cup in place of injured Chad Barrett, and scored three goals in all competitions in his first season in L.A. He was sidelined the first three months of the season with a knee injury.

Franklin joined the Galaxy in 2008 as a first-round pick in the SuperDraft, was named MLS Rookie of the Year in 2008, and played in a career-high 28 games for the Galaxy last season while also starting all four postseason matches.

Jordan also joined the Galaxy ahead of the start of the 2008 season and has spent the last four years with the club. He has played 48 games for L.A., and has two goals and three assists.

Noble has spent the last two seasons with Ljungskile SK of the Swedish second Division, while nine-year MLS veteran Noonan joins L.A. after being selected in the MLS Re-Entry Process earlier this month.

Noonan has scored 41 goals and added 33 assists in 173 regular-season games with the New England Revolution, Columbus Crew, Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders FC.
