Philadelphia Union Forward Jack McInerney Voted MLS Player of the Month

May 2, 2013 - Major League Soccer (MLS) News Release

NEW YORK (Thursday, May 2, 2013) - Philadelphia Union forward Jack McInerney was voted Major League Soccer Player of the Month by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for the month of April in the 2013 MLS season.

Jack McInerney has had one of the best monthly performances in Philadelphia Union history. He currently sits atop the Budweiser Golden Boot standings with six goals (four scored in April), and is the youngest MLS player ever to do so. He won Player of the Week (week 8) with his standout two goal performance in the Philadelphia Union's 3-2 victory over D.C. United.

McInerney has been a vital offensive force, scoring the Union's only goals in their 1-1 draws with Toronto FC and the Columbus Crew. He has contributed to every goal scored by the Union in their first seven games of the season, a new club record.

McInerney and the Philadelphia Union kick off the month of May when they host Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday, May 4, at 4:00 p.m. ET.

The MLS Player of the Month is selected each month of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media. More information and membership information can be found at http://www.soccerreporters.com/%20.
