The Portland Timbers added 28-year old Ian Joy to the back line for the 2010 season. Joy has spent several years in Germany in each of the top three divisions of the German Bundesliga. His best success came at St. Pauli over four years where he helped the club reach promotion to the top flight. Joy also has experience in MLS with Real Salt Lake in the past two years. Though he is not particularly tall (5’7) his experience in top divisions should help in solidifying the Timbers’ back line.
