CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Charleston Battery announced on Thursday the club had signed goalkeeper Trey Muse ahead of the 2023 USL Championship season. The transaction is pending league and federation approval.

Muse brings with him a wealth of experience at the club and international levels, having competed for the United States at the U-20 National Team level. He joins the Battery after spending the 2022 season with fellow USL Championship club Memphis 901 FC, where he made 32 appearances while on loan from Loudoun United FC.

The 6-foot-4 shot-stopper established himself as 901 FC’s first-choice goalkeeper and recorded eight shutouts and 74 saves as the club recorded its best campaign in club history, finishing second in the Eastern Conference during the regular season and advancing to the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the USL Championship Playoffs for the first time.

“I am excited to represent this club and be a part of the city, and I’ll do my very best to help take this team back to where it should be,” said Muse. “Coming to play for Coach Pirmann was an easy decision to make. His style last season, paired with the setup of this club and where it is wanting to go, made it easy. I’m looking to get accustomed to the squad quickly and to develop both on and off the field in 2023.”

Muse began his professional career with Seattle Sounders FC, joining their academy in 2015 and later signing a Homegrown Player contract in 2019. He was subsequently loaned to Tacoma Defiance and San Diego Loyal SC, making 39 starts in USLC play from 2019 to 2021.

A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Muse has previously represented the United States at the youth international level. He made his U-18 debut on April 25, 2017, a 2-1 victory over the Belarus U-18’s. Muse was called up to the U-20’s and featured against the Japan U-20’s on March 24, 2019, also a 2-1 victory.

Head Coach Ben Pirmann is excited about working with the 23-year-old goalkeeper again after Muse’s success in the 2022 season.

“Trey is one of the better goalkeepers in all of the USL Championship and is coming off an incredible season,” said Coach Pirmann. “Even though he is still pretty young, he has shown plenty of wisdom and had great performances. Trey is as good of a person as I have ever coached, he truly exemplifies the servant mentality that we want to see.

“Trey has very good range in his shot-blocking, commands his area well and can lead the team from the back. He has shown the ability to improve daily at a rate that I have never seen before, so we anticipate him to push our group to new limits.”
