Langley BC v August 26, 2011 v The Langley United Youth Soccer Association is pleased to announce that it will enter a U21 mens team in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League for this September. The VMSL website is www.vmslsoccer.com.
Working closely with Trinity Western University¦s Spartans men's soccer program which
competes in the CIS and with the Langley Athletic FC men's club who hold the USL franchise in the Super 20 League, LUYSA will field a team for entry in the
VMSL's U21 division competing with teams throughout Greater Vancouver. This
will allow Langley-based players (born 1990 or younger) who have completed
youth soccer to have the opportunity to play high-level competitive soccer close to home.
(This is an important step forward for our club as we work to implement the club charter requirement of delivering (cradle to grave÷ soccer in our community,÷ said LUYSA president Betty Boucas. (It also allows Langley United¦s young men who have completed youth soccer at U18 to be able to continue to compete at a high level in their own community.÷
Trinity Western University men¦s head soccer coach Pat Rohla commented.
(This is valuable for Spartan soccer in providing opportunities for our youngest players to play competitive soccer when they enter our program. It¦s also great to keep Langley youth soccer players competing.÷
Langley Athletic FC Men¦s Club President Ewen Dobbie commented.
(Forming a Langley U21 entry in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League is a excellent step forward for youth and men¦s soccer in Langley. We¦re looking forward to working to make this team a success.÷
