Great day yesterday here in Vancouver. Many thanks to the Metro Women’s Soccer League President Laurie Robertson and VP Deb Pudeck for the invitation.
I attended the Whitecaps Soccer Club’s induction of the great international player Andrea Neil who represented Canada for over a decade. Great game too – Whitecaps won.
