One hundred players ranging from ages four to twelve participated in the 2018 North End Athletic Association (NEAA) fall Soccer Program at Puopolo Park.

“All of the players both boys and girls had a fun filled and informational season thanks to the full sponsorship of Dhiren Thakker, owner of Black Dog Realty Estate Group. This is the third consecutive season Thakker sponsored the soccer program,” according to NEAA Sports Coordinator John Romano.

Thakker was also a coach and helped the NEAA coordinate the program with Romano, Michelle Stolwyk and Charles Steelfisher who also coached teams.

“Participants learned a lot about the game of soccer, improved their skills and enjoy the program,” he added. “The NEAA, at the end of the season presented medals to all of the players.”
