Toronto Footy Sevens spring season kicked-off on Tuesday with a packed night at the new 7-a-side fields at Heart Lake Secondary School on Conestoga Drive in Brampton. 24 coed teams took the field to play the first league games of 2019 along with 70 kids in the Footy For All kids soccer programs.

Despite the chilly weather (who would have thought we would see so many winter coats and touques in May?) both the adults and kids launched the season in style. We’ve posted some of the photos below from opening night and we will be posting the full galleries on the Toronto Footy Sevens and Footy For All facebook pages.

Next up comes the Thursday Men’s league tonight along with 4 more sections of 4 to 10 year-old kids in the Footy For All programs. Limited registration is still available for teams and individuals for the adult leagues and for the kids soccer programs.

About our adult soccer leagues:

Our spring soccer leagues kick off in the first week of September and run through until the end of October. You can register a whole team for $750 or as an individual for only $85 for any of the 9-week leagues. All of the leagues are 7 vs 7, fully refereed and played on the brand new turf fields at Heart Lake Secondary School.

About our kids soccer programs:

Our fall program is designed to give 4-11 year-old kids a fun soccer experience with our great team of coaches. For parents it offers a simple, convenient youth soccer option at a great price. Over 200 kids joined us for spring and for summer at the new field and we’ll see many familiar faces returning for the third session of the year.

Our coaches will be working on skill development and refining technique for part of the session. However, our main focus is that the boys and girls in the program have fun and enjoy their soccer. No try-outs or kids left on the bench while the star players get all the playing time. We’ll treat all our players the same with a supportive environment and equal opportunity for all. Fall 2018 will be our 4th season of Footy For All programming at the new facility.

Fall Sessions begin the first week of September – Registration is now open

We will be running six week fall programs at the start of the school year. They are slightly shorter than the spring and summer sessions to make sure they finish before the weather starts to get too cold, and they will run from the beginning of September though until mid-October.

You can find full details and registration for all of the programs on our FootyForAll website.

Have West Brom Snatched the “Worst Mascot Ever” Title? — ottawafootyblog

A couple of years ago Scottish side Partick Thistle made headlines around the world with a mascot that people described as anything from “terrible” to “terrifying”. The new season in the English Championship got off to a flyer today with West Bromwich Albion unveiling an even more bizarre mascot . . . what appears to […]

Go Go Power Range-stars!

Trophies

Range FC proved to be the stars of the show in our Wednesday men’s league, outlasting Team 1 in the final to take home the Wednesday league crown.

The teams had played out a 4-4 tie in the final game of the regular season to seal their playoff places, so a tight, competitive final was expected. Luckily Team 1’s play is always more imaginative than their team name and they contributed to a great first half in a game that looked like it could remain locked in a stalemate. Although Range had the upper-hand with a 2-1 lead, Team 1 pulled it back to 2-2 and penalties very much looked on the cards. Both teams passed up opportunities to win it before Range banged home the clinching goal with only a little time left on the clock. It was too late for Team 1 to respond and Range FC had taken the title with a deserved 3-2 victory.

Division 2 also matched up the top two from the regular season. In the last meeting between the teams, TR3YWAY FC had dug themselves out of a huge hole, coming from 3-0 down against Gabroo FC to claim a deserved 3-3 tie. They fell behind again in the final, trailing 2-1 at half time and 3-2 with only minutes remaining. Amazingly though, they once again managed to salvage an identical 3-3 tie to send the game into penalty kicks.

As always penalties are a tense affair, but Gabroo FC finally managed to shake off a dogged opponent and claimed the Division 2 crown with victory in the shoot out.

The summer season of the Wednesday men’s league begins on Wednesday July 25th and there are still 2 team spaces and a handful of individual spots available on a first come, first served basis at the Footy Sevens website.

Another Championship for (Mo) Leicester

Thursday Men's Soccer league in Brampton

After crowning three division champions on Tuesday, it was the Thursday Men’s league that came to a close on Thursday with 4 excellent teams facing off in the top division’s semi-finals.

Mo Leicester City FC had topped the table at the end of the regular season. They proved too strong for an excellent Mahajir FC, taking heavy revenge on the only team to have beaten them this season and cruising into the final with a 6-1 victory. Blackstars had a great match-up with Colo-Colo earlier in the season and the two teams had tied for 2nd in the regular season so a close semi-final was expected. It certainly played out that way with the 1-1 half-time tie lasting well into the second half. Blackstars broke the tie with a fine goal before Colo Colo pegged them back again until two late goals sent Blackstars to the final at the end of a tight, physical and thoroughly entertaining game.

The final was an equally tight affair, with neither team able to break the deadlock before half-time. Nick Chiarot played a captain’s role, opening the scoring by rolling one in off the far post for Mo Leicester. The Blackstars were soon level though, pouncing on a rebound after a decent save from the goalie. The final seemed bound for penalties but Mo Leicester worked the ball to the top of the box to allow their target man to spin off his defender and score the decisive goal though the keeper’s legs. As Blackstars pushed for an equaliser they inevitably left some gaps at the back and an excellent counter attack sealed the game and the Championship for Mo Leicester City FC in the dying minutes.

In the second division it was AEFC who flew out of the blocks to take a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately they couldn’t keep that pace up and by the time half-time rolled around Fortnite had pulled the deficit back and added a couple more to lead 4-2 at the break. When Fortnite scored another double after half-time the game looked over but AE pulled a couple back to suggest that a comeback might just be possible. However, as happened in many of the finals, the team pushing forward to try to salvage the game were hit on the break and Fortnite took the second division title with a convincing 7-4 victory.

The summer season of our Thursday Men’s league starts next week and we still have a couple of team spaces available and a single individual space available for registration. You can find full details at the Toronto Footy Sevens website.
