Reader David Hickey writes absolutely brilliantly

"why women can't play football" letter to local paper

When this letter about why women can't play football dropped into an editor's inbox this week, you could have forgiven him or her for instantly trashing it. But David Hickey's letter was actually superb and was penned after watching England ladies team play against Germany on Sunday. Mr Hickey explains that the women's team is doing something wrong by not diving, trying to get opponents sent off and fighting at corner kicks. He also mentions that "worst of all" they don’t hassle the match officials like they do in the Premier League. Fair play.

North London Elite Captures 2014 Canadian Championship

On a sunny Thanksgiving Monday in Charlottetown, P.E.I. the North London Elite 2000 Boys team defeated British Columbia 2-1 to win the National Club Championship for U 14 Boys. Riding two first half goals from Mathew Paquette and stellar defence, they deservedly came out as victors in a hard fought battle at the University of Prince Edward Island Sports Complex. Today's victory represents the eighth time a team from North London Soccer Club has won a National Championship. The North London Soccer Club would like to congratulate all the players, coaches and managers for their wonderful season and in representing the North London Soccer Club with the distinction they exhibited over the week. We also wish to thank all the parents for the time and support they showed all year towards these players.


After a scoreless first half of play in P.E.I. this morning the momentum started shifting in our favour and our four goals bested the solo goal by Alberta vaulting North London to the Gold medal match to be played on Monday October 13th, 2014 at 12 pm local time. North London will play the winner of the Quebec (St. Laurent vs B.C.) Coastal FC game being played later Saturday. Two goals from Kyle Buren (one a penalty kick) and two from Alejandro Salan (one a rocket from over 30 yards out) capped our scoring. North London dominated the second half of play and it was a much deserved victory. Congratulations to all the players, coaches, managers and parents and best of luck Monday.
