Meyer joins the Jacks from USL Championship Club Loudoun United
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 18, 2022) – The Charlotte Independence today announced the signing of Goalkeeper Keegan Meyer for the 2022 season. Meyer spent last year with USL Championship Club Loudoun United and competed for New England Revolution II in 2020. He is the first goalkeeper signing for the Jacks this season.
“We are excited to add Keegan to our roster. With experience in both League One and the Championship, Keegan has shown himself a good shot stopper and presence in goal,” explained Charlotte Independence Head Coach, Mike Jeffries. “Throughout preseason, Keegan has shown a strong mentality and has been solid in his build up play, characteristics we will count on during the season.”
Meyer signed with Loudoun United just over a year ago. During his 2021 campaign, he appeared in three games for 270 minutes and recorded six saves.
The New England Revolution selected Meyer as the 43rd overall pick of the 2020 MLS SuperDraft and later signed for the club’s USL League One affiliate, New England Revolution II. He made his professional debut on August 21, 2020.
After redshirting his Freshman year at High Point University, Meyer went on to play as a four-year starter for the Panthers. He was named All-Big South First Team for three consecutive seasons (2017 – 2019). Meyer concluded his time at High Point as the school’s all-time leader in career shutouts (27).
“I’m excited for the opportunity to play in Charlotte this season,” stated Meyer. “Preseason has been great so far. All the guys are putting in the work and I’m looking forward to getting on the field and bringing home some wins for the Jacks!”
While in college, Meyer also played in USL League Two with Tormenta FC, Des Moines Menace and Ocean City Nor’easters.
The Charlotte Independence are scheduled to kickoff their 2022 season on Friday, April 8 at 7:00 PM (ET). The Jacks will host Central Valley Fuego FC at American Legion Memorial Stadium.
