McCarthy, 29, joins LAFC after spending the 2020 and 2021 seasons with Inter Miami CF where he made a total of 21 appearances (20 starts) over two years, registering three clean sheets. The Philadelphia native started his MLS career with the Philadelphia Union in 2015 and has played a total of 3,750 MLS regular-season minutes in goal, appearing in 42 matches and tallying seven career shutouts.

McCarthy played for the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the United Soccer League (USL) Championship in 2019, registering 10 clean sheets in 30 overall appearances and recording the third-best goals against average per 90 minutes (0.86 / 90 minutes).

McCarthy signed with the Union in 2015 and made his MLS debut on Apr. 11, 2015 vs. NYCFC. McCarthy helped the Union to a runner-up finish in the 2015 U.S. Open Cup in his first season. Additionally, McCarthy made 26 appearances and recorded 10 shutouts on loan for the Union’s USL affiliate, Bethlehem Steel from 2016-2018. 

In 2014 McCarthy started his professional career, joining USL Pro side Rochester New York FC, where he was named USL Rookie of the Year, USL Goalkeeper of the Year, and USL All-League First Team after recording 10 clean sheets in 18 appearances.

The six-foot-one goalkeeper was a collegiate star at La Salle University from 2010-2013, becoming the school’s all-time leader in saves (468), shutouts, 28 and games played (75) for the Explorers.

PREVIEW | FC Cincinnati seek fifth-straight win, return home to host the New England Revolution

SCOUTING THE NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION (3-5-3, 11 POINTS, 11th EASTERN CONFERENCE)
FC Cincinnati will get a second crack at the defending MLS Supporters’ Shield holders, a rematch of the U.S. Open Cup Round of 32 contest on Wednesday, May 11th in Foxborough, Massachusetts. On that day, the hosts came out on top, 5-1, the fourth-straight win by New England in the head-to-head series with FCC across all competitions. 

The Orange and Blue saw on that evening first hand how dangerous New England’s top offensive threats (Carles Gil and Adam Buksa) can be. Gil secured a hat trick, and Buksa scored a brace to combine for all five New England goals. In MLS action this season, Buksa has scored in five consecutive games, the longest active streak in MLS. 

Gil is one of the league’s craftiest midfielders. He led MLS last season in assists and creating chances, and he is right on the heels of the Orange and Blue’s Luciano Acosta this season in key passes and shot-creating actions.

The Orange and Blue did not have to face Matt Turner, one of the best goalkeepers in the league last Wednesday. The USMNT netminder returned from injury and made his season debut in late April, and has one clean sheet in three appearances this season. Turner is expected to join English Premier League side Arsenal in June, making Saturday perhaps the last time FCC will try to put shots past the 27-year-old standout.

The Revs are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. Bruce Arena’s squad are coming off a 2-2 tie last Sunday at Atlanta United FC.
