David Bingham became the club's starting goalkeeper at the start of the 2015 season and made an immediate impact between the pipes. With career highs in saves and shutout, we review what was an historic campaign for the Castro Valley native.
Starting Role: Bingham became the club’s regular starting goalkeeper for the first time in his career after making just four starts over his previous four seasons with the Quakes.
Familiar Face: The only member of the team to play every minute of every MLS match this season, Bingham became just the second player in team history to play all 3,060 minutes, joining Jon Busch in 2014.
Going Streaking: Spanning from Aug. 8 at Houston to Sept. 5 vs. Philadelphia, Bingham and San Jose’s backline held opponents off the board for 448 consecutive minutes, the longest streak in MLS in 2015.
Shutouts Galore: Bingham notched 12 shutouts during the year, tying the club’s record set in 2005 by Pat Onstad.
Saves Left and Right: In just the second game of the year, Bingham made a career-high seven saves to help San Jose earn a 3-2 victory over Seattle Sounders FC at CenturyLink Field.
Keep ‘em Off the Board: Bingham’s 1.15 goals against average this year ranks second lowest among all keepers in club history to make at least 30 starts in a season (Onstad – 0.97; 2005).
Defend this Home: Bingham and the Quakes allowed just 11 goals on home turf in 2015, fewest by any MLS team in a single season since 2013.
