Chattanooga Football Club announced it has signed attacking midfielder Alex McGrath for the 2023 season.
This will be the second season with CFC for McGrath, who logged the most minutes of any player in the 2022 campaign. He scored 6 goals and delivered 5 assists, while being involved in a handful of other goals. One of his most memorable games came in the Second Round of the U.S. Open Cup when he scored in the 1' on the way to CFC's upset of Memphis 901 FC.
The native of Spennymoor, England also earned First Team Best XI honors in NISA.
"It is great to be a part of CFC's story and I always aim to help add to the legacy and success of past seasons," said McGrath. "It was great last year for me to see how much the club means to the local people and those who support it."
McGrath, who also coaches a team in the CFC Academy, knows the club's mission well.
"I always enjoyed helping in the community and met some great people as a result," he added. "It is fantastic to see how much of a positive impact CFC has on the city, especially to those who would otherwise not have soccer available to them."
