We are thrilled to announce the 1st Annual Patrick Graham Spirit Award, a new honor which will be given at this years' tournament. The award will be presented to the team that exemplifies the most spirit in honor of Patrick Graham, one of Ryan's closest friends who passed away last May.
We could think of no more appropriate award to honor an individual who always embodied the words "spirit" and "friendship". We want to recognize the team that would be most representative of Patrick's enthusiasm for life.
The 4th Annual Ryan Connolly Memorial 3v3 Tournament will be held on Saturday, November 25th, in memory of Ryan Connolly. All proceeds from the tournament go towards the brand new indoor facility at Winchester Community Park - an initiative to transform a neglected property along the Aberjona River and Cross Street into much needed all-season, outdoor and indoor, lighted, multi-sports fields.
In May of 2016, "Ryan Connolly Field" was officially opened as the main outdoor soccer field at the new WCP complex. The new field has given children in Winchester and surrounding communities the opportunity to have access to play the game Ryan loved on "his" amazing field as part of this wonderful complex.
