March 15, 2023 – United Soccer League One (USL1) – Charlotte Independence News Release
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Independence announced today that the club has acquired goalkeeper Noah Abrams on a full season loan from USL Championship club The Miami FC. Abrams, who spent a weekend with the Jacks in 2022, brings two years of USL Championship experience to the squad.
"In his short spell with us last year, Noah made a great impression as both a teammate and a goalkeeper," explained Charlotte Independence Head Coach, Mike Jeffries. "We are delighted to have him back with us in 2023 – in addition to being a good shot stopper, he brings confidence and presence to the position. I want to thank the management with Miami FC for working with us on Noah's loan."
Abrams appeared in one match for the Independence last June earning Save of the Week honors in his USL League One debut. Before joining Miami, Abrams' USL Championship career began on September 8th, 2021 with Loudoun United.
Abrams played college soccer at Northeastern University. After three seasons from 2017-2019 (the 2020 season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic), he made 20 appearances for the Huskies, recording 59 saves and one clean sheet.
In college, Abrams also appeared in USL League Two for FA Euro New York in 2017, making two appearances. In 2018, he played with Brazos Valley Cavalry FC, making two additional League Two appearances.
Abrams moved from London, England to the United States when he was 10 years old attending Berkshire School in Sheffield, Massachusetts where he was Captain for three years. Abrams was also awarded the Captains arm band for his club team Black Rock FC for two seasons.
"First and foremost, I want to thank the coaching staff for this opportunity. Coming on loan to Charlotte is a great step in my career to compete for minutes, but most importantly I'm here to help the team win as many matches as possible. Hopefully that results in a championship at the end of the season," stated Abrams. "I am excited to meet all the fans and engage with the community as I have heard nothing but great things about the city."
The Charlotte Independence kick off the 2023 USL League One season against the Richmond Kickers on Saturday, March 18 at American Legion Memorial Stadium. Home opener tickets are on sale now at charlotteindependence.com.
