After going undrafted in the 2010 MLS Superdraft, Noone started training with the expansion Philadelphia Union. After going back and forth training with the Union and their USL Second Division affiliate Harrisburg City Islanders, he eventually signed a contract with Harrisburg. Noone played 14 games for the City Islanders and picked up two assists as his hometown team fought for a playoff spot. Just as he did with Ocean City the year before, he also played a big role in the club’s run through the U.S. Open Cup.
He had a goal and an assist in the team’s 4-2 overtime win over the Brooklyn Italians (USASA) in Round 1 and followed that up with a game-winning assist in the club’s 1-0 win over the Long Island Rough Riders (PDL). In the third round, he helped the team upset the New York Red Bulls (MLS), and they nearly pulled off two MLS upsets in a row, but just like Ocean City did the year before, they lost on the road to DC United, 2-0.
On July 14 2010, Noone was given the opportunity to play against a world power. He suited up for the Union as a guest player and played in the second half in a friendly against Scottish powerhouse Celtic FC.
Two weeks later, he was in the starting lineup for the City Islanders in an exhibition game against Philadelphia on City Island in Harrisburg. He played the first half for the home team, and at halftime, he put on a Union jersey and played the second half with what would be his new club three days later. The match finished in a 1-1 draw.
Noone became the first Temple player to sign an MLS contract and is the first Ocean City FC player to sign with MLS since Adam Williamson played for the New England Revolution in 2006. Noone didn’t see any first team action in 2010 for Philly.
JT Noone continues to be an important part of the Harrisburg City Islanders USL Pro success.
Noone spent the winter of 2013 with the Baltimore Blast winning the professional Major Indoor Soccer League. He will spend the 2013 season with USL Pro team VSI Tampa Bay FC along with another former Nor'easter Tony Donatelli.
