Paul Clarkston

Paul Clarkston was nominated for Footballer of the Week and it seems an appropriate choice right now because he was instrumental in the Sooke turf soccer field build.  While the Sooke Soccer Club has appreciated the fields since November, LISA will descend upon all of Sooke’s fields this weekend with 42 teams competing in the District Cup Finals.

Paul Clarkston, owner of Clarkston Construction, took a lead role in the field’s construction and has made it the newest and most exciting new facility in the lower island.  Due to the generosity of volunteers like Paul this field was brought in under budget and to fantastic reviews. He is a dedicated Sooke volunteer who persevered through health issues during the build and for that we are all grateful.

Of course Paul coaches as well being the head coach of one of his daughter’s teams.  His U13 Sooke Riptide Silver girls won the LISA Cup this year in a cold, rainy and windy shootout in February.  Paul also plays division 4A himself.  It is a family affair with his wife also being a well respected LISA U16 girls silver coach.  We thank Paul and his family for their dedication to the game.

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