In the annual game vs Chelsea FC Vancouver, a valiant 15 reds took on the blue hordes of 25 Chelsea fans on a hot morning at Trillium fields. Despite controlling the game and creating the most chances, LFC Vancouver ran out 4-0 losers in a game where the score definitely did not reflect the game! So, after several years of success, we lost the trophy. We’ll win it back next year. Thanks to all those who came to play.
This past weekend, the annual Donnelly Supporter’s Trophy tournament took place. LFC Vancouver unfortunately did not get enough players to enter a full team of 12, but thanks to the efforts of those members who did sign up, we were able to get a team with various volunteers to make up the numbers. The tournament was a high standard and LFC Vancouver’s team did not make it past the group stage. The tournament was eventually won by Man City who fielded a large number of south american players who didn’t seem to know much about Man City. Thanks again to those members that came down, and called friends/acquaintances to come and play for us at the last minute.
Reminder to all those who are coming to play and watch – our annual game vs CFC Vancouver kicks off tomorrow at 10am at Trillium Fields, followed by the post-game drinks in the Butcher & Bullock.
If you have confirmed you are playing, please arrive at the field for 9:15am so we can get organized and put nets up etc.
Thanks and YNWA!

It’s almost time for our annual game vs the Chelsea supporters of Vancouver. This year’s game will take place on Saturday 29th July, at Trillium Fields – Kick off will be 10:00am and the Butcher and Bullock will be open after the game for post match drinks and food.
LFC Vancouver are the current trophy holders and we expect a competitive game as the Chelsea boys try and win it back!
There are quite a few players already signed up. We’ll email those who took part last year to fill the remaining gaps in the squad; primarily the team will be the guys who have played in previous years. Look out for an email from us if you have played in years past. Each player will need to pay $5 towards the cost of the referee for the game.
