The St. John’s Soccer Club is teaming up with Holy Cross, the Feildians Soccer Association, the NLSA and other clubs in the metro area to host an all ages opening weekend to support three local charities. The weekend will feature games with players from Under 8 to Masters, and will include the opening games for both the Molson Coors Challenge Cup and Breen’s Jubilee Trophy. In keeping with the regional focus, both the senior men’s and ladies home openers will see Holy Cross facing off against regional rivals Feildians.
A full schedule for the weekend is below. All games will be played at King George V pitch in St. John’s.
“We wanted to start the summer with a splash,” said Brian Murphy of the St. John’s Soccer Club. “What better way to do this than working with Holy Cross, Feildians, the NLSA, referees and other clubs to put off a weekend celebration featuring players from almost all age groups, and help the Community Food Sharing Association, Daffodil Place and Ronald McDonald House.”
“Match officials are donating their fees for all games, and admission fees for the Jubilee Trophy and Challenge Cup games on Sunday will also be donated,” Murphy said.
Admission to the all other games is a donation of your choice. Food will be donated to the Community Food Sharing Association, while cash donations will be split between Ronald McDonald House and Daffodil Place.
