The 2019 edition of the Glengarry Hearts / Brian Filion Memorial Soccer Tournament will be held at Alexandria’s Island Park on Saturday, October 12, beginning at 9 a.m., with matches continuing throughout the day.
The annual gathering over the Thanksgiving weekend marks the 40th anniversary of the Hearts of Glengarry. The name “Hearts” lives on today in the competitive youth teams that compete in the ERSL.
This tournament each year sees many Glengarrians reunite, especially those returning to the area for the holiday weekend, enjoying the spirit of the beautiful game, whilst raising funds for the Brian Filion Memorial Fund.
Individuals looking to play or volunteer as referees should let organizers know through the event Facebook page here or by calling Laurie Filion at 613-525-5570. Each team will play three matches.
At noon, all participants will gather for a group photo. There will also be a gift table.
New this year, at 1 p.m., the younger set (children under age 11) is invited to join in the fun with family games on the smaller fields.
