Biography

Ben Spencer (born March 28, 1995) is an American soccer player who plays as a forward for San Diego Loyal in the USL Championship.

Club career

Youth

A native of New Mexico, Spencer joined Real Salt Lake's Grande Sports Academy ahead of the 2010-11 season. He left the RSL system for the 2011-12 season for the Chivas USA academy (although his MLS rights were retained by Real Salt Lake). Spencer committed to play college soccer for UC Santa Barbara for the fall 2013 season but instead agreed to join Molde in Norway in December 2012.

Professional

After several months of training, Spencer signed a professional deal with Molde in April 2013, shortly after turning 18. He made his professional debut in a 4–0 win over Vålerenga on September 1, 2013.

In March 2014 Spencer moved on a season-long loan to NASL side Indy Eleven, returning to Molde in November 2014 upon the completion of his loan deal.

He moved to Toronto FC II in 2015, on loan, however, he suffered an injury and was unable to appear in a match for the team. After the season, Toronto FC acquired his MLS rights from Real Salt Lake. Soon after his loan ended, he joined Toronto FC II on a permanent transfer. After spending 2016 and the beginning of 2017 with Toronto FC II in the United Soccer League, Spencer made the move up to Toronto FC on May 2, 2017. He was released by the club in June 2018, after only making 5 appearances in 2 seasons, contributing 2 assists.

In 2019, he joined Phoenix Rising FC in the USL Championship. He scored a penalty kick in the shootout of their 2019 US Open Cup Second Round loss. During the season, he was loaned to USL League One affiliate FC Tucson. At the end of the season, he was not re-signed by the club.

Spencer joined San Diego Loyal SC in July 2020.

International career

Spencer featured for the United States U18 in 2012, scoring three goals in six matches.
