MD Myers is taking his goal-scoring talents to Charleston Battery.

The Delran, N.J. native and former Philadelphia Union Academy forward was transferred from NYCFC II to the Battery for an undisclosed fee and signed a new multi-year contract with the reigning USL Championship finalists.

“What I’m most looking forward to about joining the Battery is having the opportunity to join a club that is eager to compete for a championship,” Myers stated in a news release. “The team had a great season last year and we’ll be fighting to finish the job at the end of this season.

Myers won the Golden Boot for the 2023 MLS Next Pro season after scoring 19 goals for NYCFC II, along with recording five assists, across 28 games. He earned Next Pro Best XI honors after the prolific campaign.

“MD is an exciting center forward, he’s physical and relentless in his pursuit, and is a nightmare to play against,” Battery Head Coach Ben Pirmann stated in a news release. “He has shown his abilities throughout college and the professional ranks that he not only scores goals, but that he is a winner. He is joining a group of players bound by a common goal, to do whatever it takes to win.”

Myers was selected 66th overall by New York City FC following a standout college career at High Point University and Rutgers University. He also played locally for Ocean City Nor’easters in USL League Two over the summers of 2021 and 2022. Prior to joining the Union Academy, Myers played at Real Jersey FC.
