The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is proud to announce that Cleveland SC goalkeeper Conor Cable has been awarded the 2021 Renegade GK NPSL Golden Glove. This award goes to the league’s top goalkeeper.
“It’s been a great ride this year and over the moon with the recognition,” Cable said. “I couldn’t have done it without continuous support of the staff at the club, friends, family, and the fans. A special shoutout to Stevey Trudic for dealing with my routines and OCD when we had no sub goalkeepers and had to step in for warmups.”
Cable made 12 appearances this season, allowing just 13 goals including postseason matches.
“Conor has been a leader on and off the pitch all season,” Cleveland SC owner Samuel Seibert said. “Originally it was discussed he would be the keeper coach for CSC this year but we just couldn’t deny an opportunity to have him on the depth chart. The guy is electrifying in goal with his acceleration and awareness while being extremely consistent. Our entire back line benefits from him being back there and his screaming passion really gets the fans going as well. At the same time the guy just keeps it light and genuine, always putting those around him in a better mood.”
The Spalding, England native was a four-year starting goalkeeper at William Woods University in Missouri. He was awarded First Team All-Conference and National Defensive Player of the Week honors during his time with the Owls. Cable also held the record for single season shutouts (9), career saves (234), and career shutouts (27).
Cable played for Demize NPSL in 2017, and he has served as an assistant coach for Lake Erie College for three years.
