Career[edit]

College and Amateur[edit]

Shuttleworth grew up in Buffalo, New York,[1] and while attending Nichols School he set the school record with 48 career shutouts. Among his other accolades were winning 2 New York State Private High School Championships as well as earning first-team All-Western New York, All-State and All-East region honors. He finished his high school career with a 20-2-1 record in his senior year.[2]

Shuttleworth initially attended and played college soccer at Loyola College in Baltimore. Eventually, he transferred to the University at Buffalo where he played soccer with the Bulls. He finished with a 0.94 goals against average and an 8-2-2 record.[3]

During his college years he also played with Kalamazoo Outrage in the USL Premier Development League where he helped the Stu Riddle led franchise to the elite 8 before succumbing to the eventual 2008 PDL champions Thunder Bay Chill.[4]

Shuttleworth is currently an assistant coach at Bentley University.[citation needed]

Professional[edit]

Shuttleworth played briefly with Buffalo City in the National Premier Soccer League before being signed as a free agent on June 18, 2009 by New England Revolution after the Revs played against USL First Division team Austin Aztex in a pre-season match, with whom Shuttleworth was on trial. He signed one-year deal with an option for another four years[2] and later spent a short time on loan with Western Mass Pioneers in the USL Second Division.

He made his debut for the Revolution in a 3-0 loss against the New York Red Bulls in U.S. Open Cup qualifying on May 12, 2010. He made his first appearance in MLS league play on May 29 vs New York Red Bulls,[5] coming on as a substitute after a serious injury to Preston Burpo. Shuttleworth earned his first MLS Regular Season clean sheet on October 16 in a 1-0 win against visiting Kansas City.
