Anthony Foord Memorial Bench Dedication

Saturday, May 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am Municipal Soccer Fields

On Saturday, May 4th, a memorial bench at the Municipal Soccer Fields will be dedicated to long time Hillsborough resident, Anthony “Tony” Foord.  The ceremony naming the bench will be held on Saturday, May 4th at 10 am.

Mr. Foord immigrated from England in 1961 and brought his love for the game of soccer.  To quote his family, “he enjoyed playing, coaching, refereeing and managing all things soccer”.  

Tony was involved with the Hillsborough Soccer Club for over 25 years, serving as the President of the organization for over 10 years and working to establish the laws of the Hillsborough Soccer Club.  The white PVC tubing holding the flags that can be seen around the field was a project he proudly spearheaded.

Mr. Foord was an active member of the community and well respected by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.  Members of the public are invited to observe the Anthony “Tony” Foord Memorial Bench dedication ceremony. “It is with utmost admiration that we honor Tony’s memory with this dedication,” stated Mayor Frank DelCore.
