Minnesota United announced today the club has signed goalkeeper Clint Irwin to a two-year contract, with a club option.
Irwin joins MNUFC after five seasons with Colorado Rapids. The MLS-veteran has over 200 league game appearances, including eight playoff appearances and 37 shutouts in his ten-year career in Major League Soccer. Irwin began his professional career in the USL League Two with the Carolina Dynamo, where he played two seasons while attending Elon University. He played one season in the Canadian Soccer League with Capital City before joining the Colorado Rapids in 2013. Irwin won the starting job straightaway, making 32 regular season appearances to help Colorado to a surprise playoff berth in 2013. He made 87 regular-season starts in three years in Colorado before he was traded to Toronto ahead of the 2016 season. He was the first choice keeper in his first season at BMO Field, starting 19 regular-season matches and all six playoff contests, including TFC’s heartbreaking loss to Seattle in MLS Cup. Irwin returned to Colorado ahead of the 2019 season.
