FA Euro New York has announced that NCAA’s Siena Saints midfielder, Conor McGlynn has returned to Brooklyn for his third season donning the FA Euro colors for the USL League Two season. McGlynn, a Middle Village native, played in all 18 collegiate contests during his junior year.
Executive Director Marco Balsamo spoke about his midfielder returning for the third season, “Conor, like [Robi] Sillah, is a cornerstone for the club. We feel that he is one of the strongest midfielders in New York and is a player who we are confident will make the jump to the next level sooner rather than later. He is wise beyond his years and is a true professional. He’s a future captain of this club and is another player that we will push and promote as he is a strong caliber player who can play at a very high level.”
