Soccer Hall to close

(Continued)

Two area high school coaches said they were hoping the Soccer Hall of Fame is able to remain at its location.

Milford High School boys coach Frank Spurchise said that when he has brought teams to the museum, they have enjoyed it. He said he also knew of a student who was able to use the resources for a senior project. But he said he was more concerned about the soccer fields.

"The kids love to play there," he said. "It's a big draw" that he said he was afraid could disappear if other services are cut.

Oneonta high school girls coach Jerry Mackey said he was "cautiously optimistic" this was a procedural move that will lead to a stronger facility.

The Soccer Hall has "four of the top-quality fields in the state," he said. He said he was hopeful the fields would continue to be available after the nonprofit works through its financial and marketing issues.
