Playing career

Youth and college

Patterson was signed by English club West Bromwich Albion's youth academy in 1999 at the age of thirteen, and subsequently spent five years with the club, scoring more than 50 goals for the club while winning the Youth Alliance League and Midland Youth Cup.

Patterson played with Finnish club TP-47 from January 2005 to December 2005,[1] before moving to the United States to play college soccer at St. Louis University, where he was named the Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year in 2007.

During his collegiate years Patterson also played in the USL Premier Development League with St. Louis Lions.[2]

Professional

Patterson was drafted in the fourth round (48th overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by Los Angeles Galaxy. He made his professional debut on 22 March 2009, in Galaxy's first game of the 2009 MLS season against D.C. United,[3] and provided the assist on Landon Donovan's equalising goal.

With the MLS Reserve Division having been scrapped at the end of 2008, Galaxy briefly loaned Patterson to the Hollywood United Hitmen of the USL Premier Development League to maintain his match fitness levels.[4] He made his debut, and scored a goal, in Hollywood's 4–0 victory over Ventura County Fusion on 8 May 2009.

Patterson was waived by Galaxy on 25 November 2009,[5] having played in three MLS games for the team, and later signed with the Swedish Allsvenskan club GAIS.[6]

Patterson left GAIS later that year, and after attending trials with several professional clubs in England, joined Hednesford Town. He made his debut on 30 August against Didcot Town, scoring twice in a 3–0 win.[7]
