Today is a special day in the Atlanta United world. The club's first ever Homegrown signing is celebrating his 16th birthday today! Not only is he allowed to play professional soccer, now he can finally drive by himself!
United announced Carleton's signing a few weeks ago and it was a joyous time for the fan base. They didn't just come out and say they'd signed him, they got the owner and the president to take him to The Varsity to sign his first pro contract.
The youngster is a very exciting talent as he's shown on numerous occasions for Georgia United and the U.S. under-17 national team. Atlanta United have signed themselves a special talent and we can't wait to see what the future holds.
Congrats on your special day, Andrew!
