Anthony "Tony" Donatelli (born June 7, 1984 in Glenside, Pennsylvania) is an American soccer player currently playing for Ottawa Fury FC in the North American Soccer League.

Career[edit]

Youth and College[edit]

Donatelli played college soccer at Temple University from 2002 to 2005, and with the Ocean City Barons in the USL Premier Development League.[1] In 2005, he was named to the PDL All-Eastern Conference Team after finishing second in Barons scoring with ten goals and six assists in sixteen games played.

Professional[edit]

Donatelli was drafted in the third round of the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft by Houston Dynamo, but was not offered a contract by the team. He signed instead with the Vancouver Whitecaps in the USL First Division, and scored two goals and two assists in twenty-four games played in his debut season. In the 2006 playoffs, Donatelli made a significant impact, scoring three times in four games including a goal in Vancouver's 3–0 win over the Rochester Rhinos in the USL Division One Championship game.

On June 10, 2008, Donatelli was traded to Montreal Impact for Charles Gbeke. On October 20, 2008 Donatelli accepted a two-year extension deal.[2] During the 2009 USL season Donatelli contributed by helping the Impact clinch a playoff spot under new head coach Marc Dos Santos. He recorded his first playoff goal in the quarterfinal match against Charleston Battery in the second match of the aggregate series. The match concluded in a 2–1 victory for the Impact, which resulted in 4–1 victory on aggregate allowing the Impact to advance to the semifinals.[3] He scored his second playoff goal against the Puerto Rico Islanders where match resulted in 2–1 victory for the Impact, and allowing the Impact to advance to the finals by winning their second match on aggregate.[4] Montreal would advance on to the finals where their opponents would end up being the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, thus marking the first time in USL history where the final match would consist of two Canadian clubs. On October 17, 2009 in the second game of finals Donatelli scored the opening goal on a penalty kick in a 3–1 victory, therefore winning the match and claiming Montreal's third USL Championship.[5]

Donatelli signed with San Jose Earthquakes on January 28, 2011.[6] He trained with the club for one month before being waived on March 1, 2011, prior to the start of the MLS season.[7] He subsequently signed with USL Pro club Rochester Rhinos on March 18, 2011.[8]

Donatelli moved to fellow USL Pro team Charleston Battery on March 27, 2012.[9]
