MANCHESTER - The New England Revolution soccer team is using an online auction to help the Manchester Angels Youth Soccer League after their facility was ruined by vandalism in October.
The items include worn and signed jersey and cleats by players like Lee Ngyuyen and even a VIP home opener experience.
Vandals hit the Rock Rimmon Park field used by the Angels in October when the storage shed was tagged with graffiti and nets were ripped. The damage is estimated to be around $7,000.
According to the Manchester Angels' league president Maria Brown, the vandalism has occurred at the west side park five times over the last several years but because the grounds are city property, the league is not allowed to put up security cameras. She also said that to her knowledge there have not been any arrests made for the incidents.
The league begins in March with 650 youth players. Right now they are using temporary mismatched goal posts.
Despite a GoFundMe page set up to help pay for the damage, only $270 had been raised as of Wednesday afternoon.
