Inter Miami CF added to their goalkeeping corps by signing John McCarthy, the club announced Wednesday.
The Cinnaminson, New Jersey native returns to MLS, having played with the Philadelphia Union from 2015-2018. After a loan spell to USL Championship affiliate Bethlehem Steel FC, McCarthy spent the 2019 season with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
“With John we are adding more talented depth to Inter Miami,” Inter Miami CF sporting director Paul McDonough said in a statement. “We feel his experience in the USL and MLS will be valuable to our Club.”
The 27 year-old played 29 regular season games with the Rowdies last season, notching 10 clean sheets. With Steel FC, McCarthy also pulled 10 clean sheets from 26 appearances.
The former La Salle University goalkeeper started his professional career in the USL with the Rochester Rhinos in 2014. McCarthy received Rookie of the Year, Goalkeeper of the Year and All-League First Team honors for that season.
