Attention: Scarlet Knights Nation!

Dear Scarlet Knights Nation,

The atmosphere at Joe Walsh Stadium for our first home football game was electric.  Our football team did not disappoint, coming away with a solid victory over a talented team from Beverly High School.  As a community we have so much to celebrate and be proud of.

I reach out to you looking for your support in a few changes that I would like to make for our next home football game on Friday, October 1 against Tewksbury High School.  My hope is that these changes will only improve the quality of the home football game experience for all of us (including our guests).

1 - From this point forward we will not allow anyone on the turf practice field that runs behind the visiting team’s bench (before, during or after the game).  This change is being implemented so that we can better ensure the safety of all our spectators and guests.

2 - NA Sports Appreciation Night will take place on Friday, October 8 against Chelmsford High School.  On this night, any student (Pre-K through 12) wearing their team’s North Andover jersey will be admitted to the football game free of charge.  This will be a big night for all of us to celebrate together.  In the meantime, we want to remind everyone that there is a $3.00 charge for all students ($5.00 for adults) to enter all other home games.

3 -  A reminder that there is no re-admittance to the game once you leave the stadium.

Thanks for making this a special year - GO KNIGHTS!
