ATLANTA, GEORGIA—For carrying Atlanta United 2 FC to a victory and a draw in its last two games, American midfielder Aiden McFadden was voted USL Championship Player of the Week for Week 5 of the 2021 season.
McFadden was hot for United 2 as he scored four goals for his team in those two games.
McFadden scored a pair of goals in Atlanta’s 5-0 win over FC Tulsa, and he netted another brace in Atlanta’s 2-2 draw with Memphis 901 FC, putting him tied for second in the league with four goals scored.
McFadden received 71 percent of the poll conducted by a national panel of independent media representing every USL Championship market.
This marks the first time McFadden has been voted Player of the Week and the third time that an ATL UTD 2 player has won the award.
Atlanta United 2 (2-1-2, 8 points) hopes to make up for its blunder and get back on the winning track when they host the Birmingham Legion FC on May 30 at Fifth Third Bank Stadium (ESPN+, 3:30 p.m. ET).
