Sockers OFC Repeats 

as Masters Cup Champions

Coach Mike Whiteman expertly guided his Sockers masters team to a thrilling 2-1 extra time win over Smile at Bain Park on Monday night.  Steve Cooke scored the winning goal into the south net, the same goal where Mike Burgess scored the winner last year with the final kick of the match.  Kyle Joy made a number of great saves, and the it took a complete team effort for Sockers to retain the Cup in 2023.  

We thank the large gathering of friends and family who supported us on the night, and we also recognize our opponents who played a fine match; together we put on a very decent evening of soccer, pretty good for a group of over 35's.  And we thank BQMSL for another excellent season.

Sockers Win BQMSL Iasenza Tournament

It was a great Club win, as Sockers Men's Div. 1 teamed up with Sockers Masters to field the tournament team.  After a slow start on day one with just 1 win, the team improved with each match, beating Fury in the semi final on Sunday morning.  In the final we went up 2-0 with two tidy goals from Blake Whiteman, only to squander that lead in order to keep the fans interested.  With 10 minutes to go, a deflected cross went into the box, and Simon Penellier headed home the winner.  Aiden Kerr-Dini smashed in a fourth with only a minute to spare and seal the momentous win !   

We previously won the tournament in 2002 and 1992.  Congratulations to all the players and coaches !!

Sincere Thank You

Barb Angus

Sockers FC sincerely thanks Barb Angus (Barb Wortman as many of us know her) for her dedication to the Football Club.  Barb joined as a player on the Purple Posers in the early 1990's, and was one of the team leaders.  Barb became player-manager of the team, and was totally dedicated to her team for over 25 years (1996 to 2022.)  In more recent seasons Barb was also the coach, she literally did it all !!  The League, this Club, and its players, owe a huge THANK YOU to Barb Angus.  We hope all those who played on Barb's Sockers teams truly appreciate what she did for them.  Barb's commitment was second to none.

Tom McCulloch 

Coaching Legend

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Sockers legend Tom McCulloch.  Tom joined Sockers FC in 1989, and during that first season he turned the men's team into winners.  The team went on to great successes under Tom's guidance.  Tom coached for decades, retiring in 2016.  Tom was inducted into the QW Sports Hall of Fame in 2019.

Tom was instrumental in the growth of the Sockers Football Club.  He was our coach and mentor, the one we looked up to and admired.  He brought class to our football club, and while he liked very much to win, he was always gracious, regardless of the result.

Many of Tom's players from the "vagden" team, and later teams, went on to coach at various levels.  We all learned from Tom, and surely Tom's greatest achievement is having inspired so many of us to walk in his coaching footsteps, continuing his passion for the great game.

Coach, we will love you forever, as you have loved us.  Please know how grateful we are for all you have done for us.
