Delaware County native Michael Sheridan is the latest player to make the jump from West Chester United to the Philadelphia Union II.

Sheridan, a Ridley High School grad who starred at Division III program Saint Joseph’s College of Maine and spent the fall season at Villanova, signed a one-year MLS Next Pro deal with a club option for 2025, the team announced on Friday.

“He is a talented player, adds depth to our goalkeeper unit, and we look forward to integrating him into the squad,” Philadelphia Union II head coach Marlon LeBlanc said of the 22-year-old goalkeeper.

Sheridan joins Chris Donovan and Kyle Tucker as players to join Philadelphia Union II from West Chester United and former West Chester goalkeepers AJ Marcucci (New York Red Bulls) and Dane Jacomen (Loudoun United) to move from the local club to the professional ranks.

Sheridan was instrumental in leading West Chester to the NPSL Eastern Region championship and an appearance in the national semifinal while also playing for the team in USL League Two.
