Henry Meyerdierks was an American soccer wing half who played six seasons in the first American Soccer League and earned one cap with the U.S. national team. He was born in New York City, New York.

Professional career

Meyerdierks played for Continentals F.C. during the 1915-1916 season. In 1919, he played for Paterson F.C. of the National Association Football League in the 1919 National Challenge Cup final. In 1921, Meyerdierks signed with the New York Field Club of the American Soccer League. He played three seasons with them before transferring to the New York Giants in 1924. He saw time in thirty-three games during the 1924-1925 season, but only three and nine games in the next two seasons. He left the Giants at the end of the 1926-1927 season.[1]
