Philadelphia Union forward Cory Burke signed with the first team after playing with Bethlehem Steel FC for two seasons. While with the Steel in 2017, Burke ranked second in the club in goals with nine.
In his first season with Major League Soccer, Burke is happy to be with good company and have veterans on the team to help him improve as a player each day.
"Preseason has been good, I've had good support being with the guys and in my first MLS season here," Burke said. "It's nice to be around players like CJ (Sapong) and Andre (Blake) and to learn from them."
Burke is also a regular with the Jamaican National Team alongside Union goalkeeper Andre Blake, registering 13 caps since his international debut on Sept. 7, 2016.
"To be here with Andre (Blake), he's a good guy and I always like to be around him," Burke said. "From the Jamaican National Team to the Union, it's just great being with him."
Burke and the Boys in Blue will take on New England Revolution in the team's home opener, presented by Oliver Heating and Cooling, on March 3. Tickets for the match can be found here.
