From Bunnell High School to Stratford High School to the Short Beach Golf Course, the city of Stratford, Connecticut is a place filled with sports history.
From Soccer Hall of Famer Efrain Chacurian to former Yale University of basketball player Brandon Sherrod, from the coaching tree that is the Penders Family to the legends that are the Stratford Brakettes, this city’s athletes deserve to have their stories told.
This is the place where you will come to find the stories we have to tell.Welcome to the 21st century where, sadly, newspapers have taken a back seat to the computer screen in front of you.
The recent untimely death of the Stratford Star newspaper has left a major void for the city’s sports scene.
Other media entities have proven unable to cover local sports the way it once did due to cutbacks that have racked the industry.
The Stratford Sports Scene hopes to fill part of that gap.Much like the rebuilding of any athletic team, we plan on starting slowly and building toward the future.
We want you—we need YOU—to be a part of the team and point us in the direction of where the city’s best stories are located.
We plan on being your year-round destination location for everything that is sports related in Stratford, for forest to shore, as the saying goes.
We will not cover every single game that is played. But we do plan on reaching out to every single sport that is played in our quest to cover the city’s sports scene completely.
We thank you for joining us for this ride into the future of local sports journalism here in our city.
Without you, it simply won’t work.So keep coming back. Keep reading. Share with friends and family.
Keep rooting your teams on, be they Red Devils or Bulldogs.
The Stratford sports scene is rich with stories and the new Stratford Sports Scene plans to find those stories starting now.
