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.
