PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - The Portland Timbers announced a number of roster moves ahead of the 2019 season.

The Timbers on Thursday reported re-signing goalkeeper Steve Clark and midfielder Andrés Flores for the 2019 season.

The Timbers also announced that midfielder Tomás Conechny will return to the club on loan from Superliga Argentina club San Lorenzo and that they have also recalled midfielder Eryk Williamson from his loan with Portuguese first-division side Clube Desportivo Santa Clara.

Clark, 32, made eight appearances with 6 starts for the Timbers during the 2018 campaign, conceding just two goals in four home matches and recording two regular-season shutouts.

Flores returns for a second season with the Timbers in 2019. He played in 28 matches with 13 starts across all competitions for Portland during the 2018 campaign, registering one goal and two assists. Flores, 28, played in one match during the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Conechny, 20, was originally acquired on loan from San Lorenzo on July 17, 2018, and played in four matches with one start for the Timbers during the 2018 regular season.

Williamson made 15 appearances, all starts, for T2, tallying three goals and two assists in 1,252 minutes played in the regular season. Additionally, Williamson, 21, made his Timbers debut in a 2-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes in the fourth round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on June 2018, playing 45 minutes in the victory.

The Timbers started training camp this week and the regular season kicks off for Portland on March 2.
