After a strong 2018 season with the Sacramento Republic FC, midfielder Hayden Partain is returning to the club for at least another season, having agreed to a new contract. Partain is signed officially through the 2019 season, with a club option for 2020.
Partain scored two goals for the Republic this season, but made his impact defensively cutting off 36 passes and leading the midfielders in tackles with 46.
Republic FC General Manager shared his excitement for Partain’s return to the club; “Hayden showed his versatility and team-first mentality while playing in several positions last season, and our team was better for having him on the field. He will provide additional grit and strength to our midfield and we look forward to having him back next season.”
For Partain, 2019 will be his third season with Sacramento, the 24-year-old looking to add onto his 16 starts with the club last season.
