Over the past few weeks, Langley FC Soccer Club (LFC) talent has been recognized in a big way, according to the club.
District tryouts have been taking place for both the BCSPL (BC Soccer Premier League) teams, as well as for the district metro teams.
In the U13 girls age group, 12 LFC players have been named to the district metro team, and more than half of the BCSPL U13 intake team is made up of
LFC players, as well, the club noted in a press release.
In total, 21 of 31 girls have been placed on these two teams in the 2002 age group.
The boys program has also come on strong in this age group. A total of seven LFC players have been chosen for the BCSPL U13 intake team.
â€œItâ€™s exciting to see such an outstanding representation from our LFC club on these district metro and BCSPL teams,â€ LFC technical director Steve Millar said. â€œWe have placed more players on these district teams than other clubs twice the size. We see lots of potential in our players and we are looking forward to the upcoming fall season and working with our talented coaching staff as we continue to grow both the girls and boys programs.â€
It didnâ€™t take long for LFC players, coaches and parents to get down to business at the clubsâ€™ AGM on April 22.
