And a good time was had by all! On Tuesday evening, we had a club outing to the United States versus Colombia friendly at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. While there were a few small hiccups with seating in the supporter's section, overall, a good time was had by all. Travel down to Chester, PA was organized by car from Bergen County, the home of Hakoah. In the parking lot at PPL Park there was food and time to stretch before entering the stadium.
While the match ended in a 0-0 draw, Hakoah members were happy to get their first glimpse of FC Schalke 04 midfielder, Jermaine Jones. It was also the first time that members were able to see Eric Lichaj, a recent call-up to the first team at Aston Villa F.C. in England.
At the end of the 90 minutes, Hakoah members were invited onto the pitch at PPL Park. The gaffer was quick to take up his usual spot on the sidelines before joining the others on the grass. On the drive home, Hakoah members watched live as the first Chilean miners were rescued from San José Mine. It was truly a memorable night.
