Football Beat: North Haven’s Spring Brawl set for June 13

North Haven’s annual Spring Brawl football game will take place on June 13 at Vanacore Field at 6 p.m.

This year’s event will benefit Anthony Longley, a seven year-old North Haven resident who is suffering from a very rare form of brain cancer.

The game’s celebrity coaches will be David Fisch from 104.1FM radio and Chris Velardi from WTNH News 8.  The game is being sponsored by Executive Auto Group.

The game concludes spring practice, which begins on June 2.

Last year’s game raised money for Matthew Jacques, a Montowese Elementary School student who was born with a complex congenital heart defect. The game raised $9,000 for Jacques, who received a transplant but died from complications on Sept. 26.
