Welcome back from what I hope was a wonderful summer for everyone. When summer ends, LM soccer begins, and the young 2015 Aces' have been at it now for 2 weeks. With already 1 scrimmage under their belts, and another scheduled for this Wednesday on Arnold Field at 4:30 PM vs. West Chester Rustin, the pieces of a new season are starting to fall into place.
As you can see from the 2015 schedule, posted just to the right, LM opens their season this Friday at Avon Grove (10 AM) with hopes of another District One playoff spot, and to be in the mix for the Central League title. Beginning next week I will be blogging 2-3 times a week to keep you posted on the team's progress, along with LM soccer alumni news.
Speaking of which, a firm date has not been set yet for the annual "Lower Merion Soccer Alumni Game", but as soon as it is I will post that info right here on my blog and hopefully we can get a very good turnout this year. All I can tell you now that it will be on a Saturday afternoon, at Arnold Field, in late September or early October.
However, I can tell you that our annual "Steve Fountain Golf Event" fundraiser will be held this year on Friday, October 23rd at Edgmont Golf Club on West Chester Pike in Edgmont. For those LM Soccer alums & friends in the area I hope you will be able to come out this year and join us. If you can't there are several ways you can help this event be successful. More details to come.
