Laurence Wyke tweeted his farewell and gratitude to Atlanta United and fans late Tuesday after two seasons spent across the USL Championship and MLS.
Thank you Atlanta!— Laurence Wyke (@laurencewyke) December 2, 2020
It’s been an unforgettable 2 years. It started with @atlutd2 and ended in many games for the First Team.
Can’t thank the club, the staff, and the fans enough for the experiences. I wish @ATLUTD all the best. I’m excited to see what 2021 holds for us both. pic.twitter.com/EaKfbV7PRs
As reported in November, Wyke’s option was declined by the Atlanta United front office in the annual year-end roster moves.
Wyke made his MLS debut back in March (before the fire nation attacked) after signing a Short-Term Agreement to help make up numbers for Atlanta’s MLS season opener matchup against expansion side Nashville. He helped the team secure a 2-1 win after Franco Escobar was forced off with an injury. He signed a first team contract days after the match.
Wyke spent his first season in Atlanta playing in the USL Championship where he made 29 appearances, scored three goals and notched one assist. The 24-year-old English defender made seven appearances and started on two occasions for the first team.
Best of luck in the future, Laurence!
