Cody Cropper suited up for Hartford Athletic on Saturday for a friendly against the Puerto Rico National Team.
Cropper, who hasn’t played first team minutes since May 4 when the New England Revolution were handed a 6-1 loss to the Chicago Fire, has struggled to climb his way into Bruce Arena’s 18. In search for more minutes, the goalkeeper has been sent to USL, according to a report from Pro Soccer USA.
Cropper started for Hartford on Saturday, contributing 78 minutes before making way for Jacob Lissek. Hartford had a 4-1 lead when Cropper departed. The home team would ultimately go on to secure a 5-1 victory.
Cropper has been with the Revolution since 2015 and has charted a total of 3,240 minutes between the poles. Over the course of his 36 starts, Cropper has registered a total of ten clean sheets.
The Athletic currently sit at 17th place in the USL’s Eastern conference with a 4-17-4 record and 16 points.
With the move, Cody Cropper will have a chance to get in some crucial minutes as he looks to continue to grow as a goalkeeper.
