Forward Madison FC has signed 23-year-old Aiden Mesias, pending league and federation approval. The 5-foot-8 midfielder is natively from London, England, and spent the 2022 season playing with SSV Ulm 1846 Fussball.
When asked what Mesias will add to the squad, Head Coach Matt Glaeser shared that he’ll “bring international experience to us, and he’s a great box-to-box player. We’re excited to be able to utilize Mesias in many different roles in the midfield.”
Mesias began playing soccer at the age of nine, where he played for Charlton Athletic for three seasons. In 2012, the midfielder began playing for Queens Park Rangers, where he stayed until 2019. With QPR, Mesias made 11 starts and scored 3 goals in 13 appearances. Following his stint with QPR, Mesias’ professional career kicked off when he signed with Hartford Athletic in the USL Championship. In one season with Hartford, Mesias appeared in 13 games while he helped his squad earn a playoff berth. Following in his father’s footsteps, in the 2022 season Mesias joined SSV Ulm 1846 Fussball, a fourth division German squad.
“I want what everyone else wants to accomplish in The Flamingo Community: win the playoffs,” Mesias said. “It’ll be tough but I can speak on behalf of the team that we will work hard to try to make this happen.”
