Shuttleworth Makes Team of the Week

The Loons’ keeper is named to the TotW bench after his strong showing Saturday

Minnesota United goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth was named to the bench of the MLS Team of the Week on the back of an 8 save performance at Rio Tinto.

Bobby currently sits 6th among all MLS keepers with 52 saves. In 14 games, the former New England Revolution shot-stopper has allowed 24 goals, giving him a goals against average of 1.85 goals per game.

While he arrived to little fanfare from most, Shuttleworth has been generally steady since he came in during the home opener.

He may have made a bit of a blunder on the lone goal against RSL, but he also made several other spectacular stops throughout the match to earn his spot on the ToTW.

Hopefully Shuttleworth can continue this run of good form and perform like the goalie who led his team to the 2014 MLS Cup final.
