Women’s: www.liwsa.com    Youth: www.lowerislandsoccer.com     Men’s: www.visl.org

Footballer of the Week
John Kilbank
johnkilbank

This week’s Footballer of the Week is John Kilbank.

John was originally with Cordova Bay Soccer Club but is now widely known as a Saanich Fusion Football Club member.  He still plays, coaches, refs, schedules refs, mentors refs and sits on the Lower Island Soccer Association board.

John’s resume has included playing a key role in organizing Gordon Head Jamborees, World Cup festivals, coaching his kids and being the Vice President of Vancouver Island Soccer Referees Association (VISRA).

John is the Head Referee for Saanich Fusion which is a club with almost 1000 kids plus countless adults that all know they can speak to John honestly about the club’s referees and referee program.  LISA was a bit mean to John recently when for a U11 Festival hosted by Saanich Fusion the schedule had to be changed with about 48 hours notice and he took it all in his stride and moved, recruited and miraculously solved the puzzle with a new referee schedule!

There are behind the scenes efforts to ensure games take place each week and it can sometimes be a thankless job but knowing John he would want us to thank the other 9 club referee schedulers who also give countless hours to ensuring our game is a beautiful one.  So honorable mentions and thanks also go to:

Bays – Rex Craig
Cowichan – Billy Keserich
Gorge – Callum Greig
Juan de Fuca – Eunice Johnson
Lakehill – Al Moir
Peninsula – Bob Hope
Prospect Lake – Simon Ablitt
Salt Spring – Malcolm Legg
Sooke – Dean McGeough

John has been instrumental in positively impacting the lives of island soccer players and for that we say thanks and congratulations on being this week’s Football of the Week.

Oh and note to anyone wanting to become a referee, there is a course coming up in January. Click here for more info

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