Two area high schools, Salem, N.H., High and Pentucket Regional High School, plan to use Haverhill’s Trinity Stadium for home football games in the fall, WHAV has learned exclusively.

Haverhill High School Athletic Director Tom O’Brien confirmed the news to WHAV, stating the city was pleased to be of assistance.

“We’re happy to help,” O’Brien said, “We would hope another school would do the same for us in this situation.” O’Brien also emphasized how busy the Lincoln Avenue stadium may be in coming months, saying, “There could be a weekend with three home games this fall.”

The Salem High School superintendent’s office told WHAV the Salem Blue Devils are expected to play five games at Trinity Stadium, due to construction at the school’s Grant Field during the football season. Pentucket Regional did not return multiple requests for comment about their reason for relocating to Trinity.

Salem’s first home game is scheduled against Londonderry, N.H. on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., while Pentucket kicks off their home stand against Amesbury on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m.

The Haverhill Hillies’ first home game at Trinity Stadium takes place on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m.

According to Haverhill’s Treasurer and Collector Alicia T. McOsker, both schools have a contract to pay Haverhill $900 for each game played at the stadium. Additionally, McOsker estimated the schools would pay $150 hourly for a Haverhill Police Department detail.
