Queen’s University officials have always maintained that the new Richardson Stadium will be a community minded facility. That being said — the Kingston Clipper’s are the first team to jump on board.
Chris Eveleigh/Clippers Technical Director
“We can’t wait until next spring, next summer to be in the stadium and working with our players in a world class facility, and hopefully — eventually — the long term dream is to start filling it with soccer fans — I’m not sure that it’s going to happen straight away but it would be great if we can increase the awareness of soccer and grow the game.
But that’s for next season. The Ontario League 1 Clippers — have just a few games left to play at their present home — Queen’s Tindell Field.
“The men — we look to probably finish 5th — could still hit 4th — but yeah a real good performance by the lads and we’ve got a lot of real young kids coming through at the end of the season which is great and that’s what we’re doing this for.”
As for the women?
“The women have had a tougher season at the end — it’s a learning experience for our younger players who started coming into the team at the end of the season — but again it’s a learn experience for the community and it gives us something to work on and get better at.”
