A huge thank you to everyone who made this Andover Recreation Soccer season a success!

After a co-ed season with two full teams, Andover’s mighty group of third and fourth grade girls played together for the Bob Andrews Memorial Jamboree at the New London Outing Club with coach Lindsey Allenby. Caption and photo: Scott Allenby

Our third and fourth grade teams finished out their seasons today with successful showings at the Bob Andrew’s Memorial Jamboree in New London. Our third and fourth grade girls joined forces into a small but mighty group and, with no substitutes, played three straight games –  winning one, tying one, and falling short in one. Great work, girls!

Our third and fourth grade boys finished with two wins and one loss in the jamboree and played great! Thank you to coaches Lindsey Allenby, Shane Szilagyi, J. Koron, and Kayden Will for a great season!

Our fifth and sixth grade teams played incredibly hard in their end of season tournaments. The fifth and sixth grade girls ended up taking third place in the B Division after finishing the season with a 7-4 record, winning their last six games in a row! 

The boys came in fifth place in the A Division after going 6-2-3 in the regular season. Both groups got much, much better over the course of the season. Thank you to coaches Molly Leith, Cortney and David Johnson, Scott Allenby, and Adam Jones for a great season!

Our kindergarten through second grade clinics were also a success, and a big shout-out goes to Molly Leith, Jess and Brandon Adams, and Jack Williams for helping coach that group of high-energy kids.

Lastly, to all of our parents, thank you for a great season. Watching our parents support our teams throughout the season, and especially at the end-of-season tournaments and jamborees, made me very proud to be from Andover.

You all understand why we do sports – it’s not about winning, but about helping young people gain confidence, feel known, and develop a love for sports. You helped do that for our kids this season by being positive on the sidelines and keeping the kids at the center of all we do. Thank you!
