Flatley, born in Virginia Beach, Virginia, was a SoCon All-Conference First Team last year with the Cougars, and scored 6 points in his 20 appearances as a Senior. He transferred to Charleston after playing one year at the University of Maryland.
Flatley is a valuable asset to the Battery's back line. He performed well in this year's USL Combine, as well as Charleston's preseason matches.
Here's a short video on Flatley, with an interview and a short bio.
Earlier today, the USL announced their USL Pro Team of the Week. Though Richmond's Matt Delicate (deservedly) earned the award for Player of the Week, two players for Charleston earned spots on the Team of the Week.
Forward Dane Kelly and Defender John Wilson were both awarded for their performances in the Battery's game against Charlotte last Saturday.
Wilson had a great performance against the Eagles, with one spectacular goal-saving header on the line.
Kelly played well against Charlotte, and created the own goal that would give Charleston the win, when he crossed the ball into Charlotte's net off Mark Bloom.
Here is the rest of the Team of the Week (apparently they come out in a 4-3-3):
Sevilla FC PR
F.C. New York
Puerto Rico Utd
Charleston will be playing at Dayton this Saturday at 7:30. You can watch the game on usllive.com.
