  1. New WPSL expansion club, Vancouver Island FC announced their first three signings in club history on April 19th. Three players were named to the roster: Liz Gregg, Mariel Solsberg, and Alexis McKinty. Coached by Neil Sedgwick and Wes Barrett, the first tryouts were held on April 1st and the club has two more tryouts scheduled for late April. Liz Gregg joins VIFC with a wealth of professional football experience including multiple seasons abroad with Doncaster Rovers Belles. ... Continue reading on the NSXI Network.

  3. Blasco 3, Campbell 2, Fisk, Smith, and Starostzik.
  4. For those who haven't tried, according to Untappd: Moosehead Lager: 3.09 / 5 Moosehead Light: 2.84 / 5 Cracked Canoe: 3.05 / 5 Their highest rated beer ever (probably no longer available, but I want one): Coconut Coffee Ale: 3.92 / 5
  5. Haven't heard anything from them via the site's email sign-up. Any news regarding OneSoccer has come via Twitter, but there's been very little.
  6. I think there is some consciousness among the teams not to step on the toes of already established clubs & operations. Pacific FC has Victoria Highlanders FC (USL-2, PCSL, VISL-1 affiliate, VISL-2) over at Centennial Stadium. Although a partnership may never be official, there is likely a gentleman's agreement between the clubs that may prevent Pacific from launching their own U-20 in PCSL/VISL/etc. Forge FC & York 9 FC both have, as you mentioned, a number of nearby L1O, L1O Reserves, and OPDL sides. They may benefit more from a variety of U-20/U-21 clubs pulling up the area
  7. And the backline grows. Ryan McCurdy has officially signed with the team: https://pacificfc.canpl.ca/article/pacific-fc-adds-to-back-line-with-addition-of-centre-back-ryan-mccurdy
  8. Thanks for the continued updates. I know all the fine folk over at the NSXI Network love seeing themselves included as journalists in the mod (as you've likely seen from the various excited social media posts). Keep up the great work!
  9. Thank you for laying that all out. I'll have to keep it in mind if I manage the lengthy trip to some York & Forge matches.
  10. The basics, actual positive/negative, or real science? For the basics, use cookies. They're attracted to cookies right? Magnets are attracted to metal the same way. Done! For positive/negative, use something you fill at one end, and empty at the other. Place it so the "fill" is at the top, and the "empty" is at the bottom. Magnets are only attracted in one direction, just like this <container> can only be filled from one side. When you try to put magnets together the wrong way, say too positives or two negatives, it'd be like trying to shove food/lego/etc back up from the botto
  11. Might not be a bad idea for them to enter discussions with Futsal. They run through the winter right? That could help fill the winter-gap.
  12. I really hope they don't open up subscription and have their first "trial run" on the 27th itself. Onesoccer.ca crashed the day after the kit announcement due to high traffic, I can only imagine what will happen launch day...
  13. Nope. I mean Ferrari. They split from FIAT in 2015. VW's purchase hit my feed the other day: https://www.carmod.net/volkswagen-buys-out-ferrari
  14. They also own Ferrari now too. Maybe a VW-made Ferrari will be the prize for year 2. lol
  15. Not so tiny. Once you get to about #40, you have a 1500-way tie between numerous independent coffee shops with 5-10 people (depending on the season).
  16. Yes and no... I'd rather it was an independent L2O than an L1O Reserve. The restrictions require L1O Reserve squads to have an OPDL or L1O license. It also says that L1O Reserve squads will be mandatory for L1O teams. This will create some pretty nasty barriers to entry for places without either, like, say, Greater Sudbury. This move now means if someone with coin and ambition in Sudbury wanted to launch an L1O team (Dario Zulich), they now need to be prepared to launch 2-sides: L1O & L1O Reserve. That's probably a tall ask...
  17. They also obtained the rights to L1O (mens & womens), CanMNT and CanWNT... Alright, that's not much more, but it can get them more than just 3 matches a week if they use those rights (and take steps to improve recording/broadcasting of L1O matches). That said, $7.99 seems a fairly reasonable amount for such limited content. They'll likely charge more (if they go this route), but I'm not sure the value would be there for any additional cost.
  18. I think the previous Scarf Cup was 100% on Twitter. It'll be pretty far back on his feed.
  19. Scarf Cup - Matchday 5 https://www.northernstartingeleven.com/scarf-cup-matchday-5/ Beat you to it Rob
  20. Ummm... Your info is not correct. There is now a Men's and Women's Division. (* denotes new this year) Mens: Penticton SC Kamloops TRU Okanagan FC * Victoria Highlanders FC Reserves Mid Isle Mariners FC Surrey United FC * Vancouver Tigers * Khalsa Sporting Club Womens: Penticton SC * Kamloops TRU * Mid Isle FC * New Westminster FC * North Shore Girls SC * TSS Academy * They had previously claimed the men's division would increase to 10 teams this year, apparently didn't happen.
  21. Be sure to tell him not to rush his recovery. We'd rather he come back long-term and healthy, than early and take the chance of undoing all the healing.
  22. Sort of. Victoria Highlanders and TSS FC Rovers have their top-level in PDL. Highlanders have had their reserves in PCSL for a couple years, marking a clear line of progression. Agreed, it is definitely a step down from League1 (which itself is still a step-down from PDL-quality). They've (PCSL... actually, both... L1O has been closing the gap with PDL too, so, yeah.) been moving in the right direction, with stronger squads and increased stability over the past couple of seasons, but there's a lot of work to do. If the league was turned over to a wealthy and savvy group, they coul
  23. Sounds like a good move. With the improvements we've started seeing to the Pacific Coast Soccer League, a purchase & push there could move it toward "League1 BC" Victoria Highlanders (PDL) now have teams playing in VISL (both a div-1 partner and a branded div-2), in addition to their PCSL reserve team. Almost seems like a natural partnership could be reached between Pacific and Highlanders.
