The San Antonio Scorpions have made two signings with Danny Barrera and Jonathan Fana joining the club it was announced on Wednesday.

Barrera joins the club from Atlanta where he was an impressive force in midfield for the Silverbacks regularly proving a creative force for the Silverbacks through his three years at the club.

The Colombian had a stellar season for the Silverbacks in 2013, making 17 assists, enough to put him second in the league which should help the Scorpions goal scoring.

The midfielder has proved to be an ironman for his clubs playing every match and 1,600 minutes for the SIlverbacks, vital for a team that struggled with injury in 2013.

Eric Wynalda is responsible for bringing Barrera to NASL after he played in that infamous Cal FC side that made a run in the US Open Cup before Wynalda and thus a number of players were signed by Atlanta.

Fana joins from El Salvador's Allanza FC but will be familiar for Scorpions fans as he has spent time at Puerto Rico with the Islanders.

Fana captained the Islanders to the 2010 USSF DIvision 2 Championship before winning the player of the year in 2011 as he scored 12 goals for Puerto Rico.

The Dominican Republic striker has been just as prolific in El Salvador as he managed 13 goals in 2013 for Allanza FC.

Fana is also an international, currently a member of the Dominican Republic set up he has made 25 appearances for his national team.
