Louisville City is developing a habit of poaching talent from its rivals. Less than a month after securing former Indy Eleven player, Tyler Gibson, City has just announced the signing of FC Cincinnati fan-favorite, Jimmy McLaughlin. The Pennsylvania native was part of the Philadelphia Union’s youth system and played one season collegiately for Colgate University, earning 2011 Patriot League Rookie of the Year honors.
