Memphis, Tenn. – Memphis 901 FC midfielder Aaron Molloy was named to the USL Championship Team of the Week for Week 24 of the regular season on Tuesday, the league announced. The honor is Molloy’s seventh Team of the Week appearance this season.
Molloy recorded assists on both of Memphis’ goals in a 2-0 road victory over New Mexico United on Wednesday night. The Irish international recorded six chances created in two games while completing 93 of 116 passes and winning 15 of 27 duels.
