Goodbye Shoeless Joe’s, our home pub

RPB members at Shoeless Joes image

RPB members organized their last big gathering at Shoeless Joe’s on December 27th after our beloved Joe himself announced at the beginning of December that Shoeless Joe’s would be closing its doors at the end of the month. With such a short window to celebrate in style, members old and new joined in the festivities or dropped in throughout the month to shake Joe’s hand to thank and wish him well.

We celebrate everything that bar has meant to us. Joe’s has been our rock through thick and thin, and I consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have called it home for so many years.

Joe’s has been the home to the Red Patch Boys since 2007 when TFC first started. It has also been a hub for the entire soccer community.

Joe’s has always been there for us, and we’ve always been there for Joe, Kim (wife) and the incredible staff.

Joe, has accepted that this chapter of owning Shoeless Joe’s at King and Dufferin has come to an end. Joe has always gone above and beyond to accommodate RPB – treated the group like family. We wish Joe, Kim and staff well in their future endeavours.

Shoeless Joe’s Restaurant, previously located at King and Dufferin, became the unofficial “clubhouse” for the RPB’s, hosting pre and post game socials as well as various club meetings. The outstanding service and hospitality exhibited by owners Joe and Kim Cho quickly lead credence to the chant “This is our house”.

Red Patch Campaign for Mental Health & Wellness image

As tradition continues, RPB members voted for the Red Patch Boys TFC Player of the Year. Members weigh each player and dictate the most valuable player, a player that stood out on their accomplishments and/or the player who has made a difference throughout the season. Minutes played, games played, games started, goals, assists, shots taken, shots on goal, game winning goals, fouls committed, and fouls suffered all factor into their decision. The player with the most votes will be gifted a plaque from the Red Patch Boys and a Player of the Year scarf.

Congratulations to Alejandro Pozuelo!

The Supporters Cup Tournament was held on Sunday, October 27 at BMO Training Grounds. The cold and heavy wind challenged the teams.

RPB did not come out on top but endured and persevered. Thanks to all players and spectators who organized and participated on the blustery day!

Red Patch Boys Campaign for Mental Health & Wellness

Supporting Mental Health Home & Away

The RPB Charity and Community Team had created a new campaign to bring awareness to mental health and wellness. The initiative combined a campaign of fundraising through online donations and raffle prize draws, posting RPB-centric awareness content and concluded with a 5k run.

The campaign kick off brought awareness to World Suicide Prevention Day on Tuesday, September 10. Over the subsequent weeks, a series of quotes were posted to Red Patch Boys social media platforms from TFC Alumni and RPB members. The campaign ended unofficially on World Mental Health Day, Thursday, October 10 but continued to raise funds for the Charity Challenge RPB team in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (5K Division) on Sunday, October 20.

This year’s campaign ended with just over $1,200 in donations to CAMH – The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Thanks to all for helping the cause. We look forward to next year’s campaign.
