SACRAMENTO, Calif. (December 5, 2018) — Sacramento Republic FC announced today the club has signed midfielder Hayden Partain to a USL Championship contract for the 2019 season with a club option for 2020, pending league and federation approval.
“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,” said Republic FC General Manager Todd Dunivant. “He will provide additional grit and strength to our midfield and we look forward to having him back next season.”
Partain enters his third season with Republic FC after joining the club in August 2017 from USL League Two side Des Moines Menace. The 24-year-old midfielder made 18 appearances for Sacramento last season, 16 as starts, and scored two goals for the club.
A native of Frisco, Texas, Partain became a key cog in Republic FC’s midfield last year as the team fought to clinch a home playoffs berth late in the season. The club lost just twice during Partain’s 16 starts, recording a 12-2-2 (W-L-D) record during that span.
