Jaye chalked up four more saves, playing in goal against New York Red Bulls II and saw the pitch again in a 2-0 win against Wilmington Hammerheads.

In his first season with LouCity, Quinn posted a pair of goals and an assist in 21 games. Quinn made his professional debut with Orlando City SC in 2014, winning a USL league title with the club.
“We are pleased to add a player of Aodhan’s quality and experience to FCC,” said Harkes. “We have tracked him for a while and fans are certainly aware of how well he did with Louisville City FC last year. We are looking forward to having him join the team in 2017.”
Quinn played three years at the University of Akron, where he was voted a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) first-team selection and the 2013 Mid-American Conference Player of the Year.
