The Philadelphia Union today announced that the club has signed current Union II midfielder Jack McGlynn to a Homegrown Player contract.

A 17-year-old central midfielder, McGlynn joined the Union Academy in 2019 and becomes the 14th Homegrown player in Union history. The Homegrown contract will take effect on January 1, 2021.

“We are excited to welcome Jack to the First Team,” said Ernst Tanner, Union Sporting Director. “After signing with Union II, he has continued to impress the technical staff with his development after making an early impact with our USL team. His ability to play across the midfield and his capacity to process new information and put it in to action on the pitch at a young age shows how high his ceiling can be.”

McGlynn joins the club after his time at the Union Academy and a great start to his pro career with Philadelphia Union II where he will play for the remainder of the 2020 season. McGlynn has appeared in five of Union II’s six matches in 2020, starting in four and logging 388 minutes of USL experience.

Earlier this season, McGlynn scored his first USL goal and added his first USL assist in a breakout performance against New York Red Bulls II in a 3-2 win (August 5). His performance in that match earned him his first USL Team of the Week honors.

TRANSACTION: Philadelphia Union sign midfielder Jack McGlynn as a Homegrown Player on August 17, 2020, with the signing effective January 1, 2021.

Name: Jack McGlynn
Position: Midfielder
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 140
Born: July 7, 2003 in Middle Village, NY
Hometown: Middle Village, NY
Citizenship: United States
Acquired: Philadelphia Union sign midfielder Jack McGlynn as a Homegrown Player on August 17, 2020, to become effective January 1, 2021.

Not matter how you put it, Gottschee has produced players over years. There is no other club that can compare in this region.

Well they are located in NYC so until MLS came along they had the talent. Now the only one has been the DOC son, who obviously got the attention.

Great for him. I love to hear stories like this. I had no idea Gottschee played a role in his development. 👍🏼

Yes, if you’re looking for a pro path then consider: NYCFC Academy, Red Bull’s or Gottschee.
