 Footballer of the Week
Patrick (Paddy) Nelson
Cowichan Div 1
PatrickNelson

Another solid year so far for Paddy. Leading the division in goals with 26, as well as the entire League. Paddy was also part of the VISL Open Mens Allstar team that defeated the Fraser Valley team 3-0 on January 9 at Layritz. He scored a goal and was a key part of the game. This past weekend, Paddy is coming off a game where he scored 5 goals.  And other than 1 of them that was a tap in from the 1 yard line, they were all quality.

Pro soccer wise, it is noted from sources within that his favorite team would be the team everyone hates at the moment or the team that is winning everything.

Superstitions wise – very limited but pregame necessities are GAT (legal performance enhancer), 4v2, and coconut water. He’s very picky about jersey size, if it’s anything larger than a medium he won’t wear it, don’t even think about giving him an XL. And he’s constantly demanding more room in the change room.

Post-game he has to eat a burger, and has been known on occasion to have two in one sitting. Post-game burger is a must. Always a happy guy, always super competitive with no off switch. He is your typical goal scorer – if he has a chance at goal – he’ll take it! One of the few times Paddy gets upset is if he has to miss training sessions when it is Double Point Tuesday.

Paddy has been Division 1 MVP a couple times in the past handful of years, has been right up there in scoring every year – but through it all has remained pretty grounded. Paddy has been in Victoria since 2008 where he was playing with Saanich Fusion Div 1 – and has played with Cowichan the last couple years.

During the day, Paddy is a parole officer – hopefully you don’t have to go see him.

Almost always a very classy guy who has respect for the game and the people that are involved in it.

 

1550′s will buy Paddy lunch and a beverage for being this week’s Footballer of the Week!

To nominate a player, team or administrator please contact your respective organization.
