The New England Revolution announced on Tuesday that they’ve re-signed goalkeeper Matt Turner ahead of the 2021 season. Turner is coming off a campaign in which he helped lead the Revs to the fewest goals allowed in franchise history (1.09 per game).
Turner finished second in MLS Goalkeeper of the Year voting in 2020, and was also named team MVP. He allowed three goals in four playoff games for the Revs, who won three postseason games in a row en route to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Columbus Crew ended New England’s season in the conference final game by a mere 1-0 edge.
MLS re-shared one of Turner’s best playoff moments to celebrate his new contract with the Revs. Turner made a clutch stop on a penalty kick by Nani of Orlando City FC in the 74th minute of the conference semifinals, with the Revs clinging to a one-goal lead. New England went on to win 3-1.

Turner has worked his way up the Revolution ranks since joining the team as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He’s in the top-3 in franchise history in wins, saves, and goals against average.
