FOOTBALLERS OF THE WEEK
Bringing together an island

UnitedFootballLogo

This is a joint project between the VISL, the LIWSA (women’s league) and LISA (youth league) to recognize individuals in the soccer community.

Footballers of the Week

LISAAwardWinners

Executive of the Year – AL Moir

Al is not only involved in the development of BC’s referees but is also Lakehill Soccer Association’s Head Referee and Field Coordinator.  He is a friend to all! Now what would we do without Al?  As Lakehill President Jeremy Mannall-Fretwell says, “I live in fear of the day Al says he is going to retire! Words cannot do justice to how much effort he puts into refereeing, teaching, mentoring, and assessing. Our referee program is strong, vibrant and growing and it is all because of Al. His contribution to Lakehill and to Lower Island Soccer is immeasurable!”

 President’s Award – Derrek Trimmer (John Bentley accepting)

Derek Trimmer from Bays United FC was awarded the President’s Award to great applause for his vision, volunteerism and ability to keep others on track with regards to the VIPL committee(s) from the 2016/2017 season. The VIPL provides Tier 2 soccer for youth soccer players, between the BCSPL and club-based gold play.  Derek put in countless hours, where he specialized in policy, to ensure changes that will be phased in over several years begin next season with the new regional model of VIPL for players born in 2004.  The LISA board, LISA staff and all of the LISA presidents are aware that the new model would not have been possible without Derek and wanted to recognize him for his efforts.

 Referee of the Year – Sara Abelenda

Sara is a district level referee and was awarded Gorge Soccer Association’s Female Referee of the Year last season.  Gorge Referee Coordinator Callum Greig tells us she’s a very strong student of the game constantly pushing her own limits.  At LISA we have had the pleasure to watch Sara referee on numerous occasions and she has the confidence that all parents wish for their daughters to possess and all Executive Directors want for their tournaments.  Sara Abelenda will go far in life and will look forward to keeping her in the middle of the soccer field during her journey.

 Coach of the Year – Tracy Cornforth

When a child gets involved in a sport it is often found that a parent coach doesn’t come far behind. Tracy Cornforth’s story is not a lot different, yet when other parents decide not to continue coaching when their kids after they are 7 or 8, Tracy kept going. Her two girls are now U12 and U14 and she puts as much work and energy into one team as she does the other. She works dawn to dusk working on the successful development of her teams. She is a kind, generous and organized individual who no one ever has a bad thing to say about. She’s on time for games and is always prepared, her teams respect her and listen to her and the success of her U14 Silver team on the LISA Cup shows just that.  But what shows it more is the smiles the players wear and their desire to show up to each practice and game.  Thank you Tracy, for all that you do for the sport of Soccer in Victoria.

 Congratulations on being this week’s Footballers of the Week.
