Well, spring is finally here and the Chelmsford soccer fields are open. I am sure we all kept in tip-top shape by shoveling snow all winter so we should have no problem hitting the fields running. CYSA has graciously assigned us Field 1 (8v8) at Murphy Fields (see the About/Directions menu item for where that is). So, let’s play some soccer this Sunday (4/19) at 9AM. Please bring a white (not gray) shirt and a colored shirt and some water and your joy of the game. Play Ball (oops, wrong sport)!
Unfortunately, we only had 6 people show interest in playing indoor soccer this winter. With the cost being ~180/hour, we would need a good 12 people to make it worth while. So, I guess we are calling it for the season. If we are lucky we will have a mild winter and the fields will open early next spring. Stay tuned to this blog for when and where we will pick it back up again.
Have a great holiday season and stay warm. MLS Cup is Sunday Dec. 7 at 3PM. GO REVS!!!
OK, it was pointed out that there is still snow on the ground. Good point. Maybe we should take this week off. ;-)
Vyacheslov found that there is a chance for us to get an hour of time at Tyngsboro Sports Center on either Tuesday or Wednesday nights (7 or 8pm, I think). If we can get about 10 people who can commit to showing up every week, we can reserve a time slot for pickup games. Please reply to this post if you are interested.
… and we are on for pickup soccer tomorrow. Weather should be mid-40’s and partly cloudy. No reason we shouldn’t get another week out of this. As usual, bring a dark and light shirt and a friend to Murphy field at 9am.
So, I hear there has been good turnout the last few weeks. I have been unable to attend but I intend to be at Murphy field tomorrow morning at 9am. I hope we have a good turnout. As usual, bring white and dark shirts. See you there. And bring a friend.
By popular demand, we are not calling it quits yet. The weather should be good for soccer tomorrow and the pitch should be in good shape so lets try to get a few more weeks of soccer in before winter really sets in. As always, bring a white and a dark shirt and be at Murphy field for kickoff at 9am. Bring a friend.
Well folks, it is supposed to be in the mid-30’s, rainy, and windy tomorrow. Some may call that ideal soccer weather but I think I will be staying in bed. I am thinking we should at least take this week off (the field will be a mess after Saturday’s rain) and maybe even call it quits for the winter. We have had a great run; some really well attended games and some spirited small sided games as well. Lots of fun and only a few injuries (feeling better Roger?). Please reply to this post and let us know your thoughts – have we had enough?
Also, Go Revs! First playoff game today at 4pm vs. Columbus.
