No protests planned, say Reeds
In response to the Nov. 3 article Riptide pull their goalie, the Reed family wants to ensure the public that, contrary to comments made by Riptide steering committee chair Sean Arbour, the Reeds are not organizing any protests at upcoming Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide U-15 girls’ soccer games.
“We have never threatened to protest,” said William Reed, in a phone call to The Record on Tuesday. “We have no problem with the club, per se, or the team.
“There’s no plan. I don’t know where he got that, but it didn’t come from us. There is no intention on Annisa or Freyja’s part to interrupt a match.”
