SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento Republic FC announced today the loan of defender Elliott Hord to USL Championship side Hartford Athletic for the remainder of the 2019 season, pending league and federation approval. As part of the loan agreement, Republic FC has the right to recall Hord up until the roster freeze date on September 20.
"This move will provide Elliott with valuable playing time in Hartford, while giving us some roster flexibility, said Republic FC General Manager Todd Dunivant. "We see it as a win-win-win for all parties."
Hord joined Republic FC in August 2016 from USL League Two side Fresno Fuego. The 28-year-old midfielder has made 61 appearances for Sacramento across all competitions during his four seasons with the club, scoring two goals and adding nine assists.
A Fresno native, Hord played collegiately at UC Davis from 2010-13, making 67 appearances and recording a goal and three assists during his four seasons with the Aggies. After college, Hord joined the Fresno Fuego before moving abroad to play with Yxhults IK in the Swedish third division.
