Clarke, Kindel and Klein. Sounds like a good name for a law firm.

The trio will be laying down the law on the pitch at Swangard Stadium for the Vancouver Whitecaps again this season after signing new contracts yesterday.

Captain Jeff Clarke, 28, had a goal and an assist in his fifth year as a Whitecap in 2005. Steve Kindel, 29, is a nine-year Vancouver veteran who moved from midfield to defence last season. He scored once and tallied a pair of assists.

Steve Klein, 30, is entering his second season with the Whitecaps. The six-foot-two midfielder was a USL First Division all-star with seven goals and four assists.

Whitecaps kick off training camp March 25.

The team plays six exhibition games, beginning March 28 in Surrey, before opening the USL season April 22 with a game against the Portland Timbers.
