D.C. United releases Anthony Peters

Washington, D.C. (June 29, 2009) - D.C. United announced today the club has released defender Anthony Peters. The 25-year old was originally signed by the Black-and-Red on March 3, 2009.

“We'd like to thank Anthony for his hard work and contributions while a member of the team,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper. “We wish him the best of luck in his career.”

Peters made one appearance while a member of United, coming on as a 82nd minute substitute in D.C.’s 2-0 win over FC Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup play-in game on April 22. Prior to United, Peters finished his collegiate career at West Virginia Wesleyan College, where he was named the 2008 WVIAC Player of the Year.
