Wethersfield residents Isaac and Williams Lukens, joined other young soccer hopefuls around Central Connecticut, participating in a public soccer clinic featuring stars from New England Revolution.
The event, hosted by Santander Bank, took place at Trinity College in Hartford on August 15 and gave soccer fans and their families an exciting opportunity to play alongside their favorite Revolution players.
The free clinic featured Revolution midfielders Scott Caldwell, Nicolas Firmino, DeJuan Jones, and goalkeepers Cody Cropper and Brad Knighton, along with Revolution Academy coaches leading skills clinics with drills, demonstrations and instructions for the youth (ages 5 through 12) and their families.
Along with meeting their favorite Revolution stars, fans enjoyed photo and autograph opportunities, games, and more.
This marked the first time that the Santander Bank, the official bank of the Revolution, expanded the event to include multiple cities. Hartford’s event was the third such public clinic this season featuring the Revolution. The other clinics took place in Boston, MA and Providence, RI.
The Revolution, who play their home games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, are in the homestretch of their 24th professional season and currently have an overall record of 10-9-9 with six games to play in the regular season.
Two of those remaining games are at home and the upcoming game, this Saturday, Sept 7, against New York City Football Club will be played at the hollowed grounds inside Yankee Stadium.
