PLAYING SQUAD

Gary Lineker: "Trevor Brooking is in the Sapporo Bowl. What's it like, Trevor?"
Trevor Brooking: "It's a bowl shape, Gary."

[Jason Clegg] Squad Number 1 - Jason Clegg
Jason is another product of the successful Overwaitie Academy feeder team at the Classics. Affectionately known as Jethrine, due to his intellectual ability to perceive and retain knowledge, his goal is to out-do Jethro.
[Jeff Dickson] Squad Number 2 - Jeff Dickson
Jeff has joined the squad for the 2017/18 season after a successful loan spell. He is returning to a playing career after a long spell coaching at the youth and college level. His most notable achievement is coaching his girl's team to three consecutive provincial championships. Although early in his career with the Classics, he is currently on pace to match his scoring tally with an equal number of cards.
[Jimmy Butler] Squad Number 3 - Jimmy Butler
Jim played for the Richmond Olympics, Club Ireland and various Richmond Select teams including the Richmond Rockets. Notable players that he has played with/against included Randy Samuels (Captain of Team Canada), Ted Hamilton, Chris Cheudin (both ex-pros) and Dave Moore. Jim was originally a product of the Classics Youth Academy who matured into a campaigned forward with an amazing record of more than a goal every game. Jimmy had a break through injury but is now back in action for the 2017/18 season.
[Randy Hosler] Squad Number 4 - Randy Hosler
Randy sells himself as well as homes and buns. He admitted that joy is of paramount importance to everything so why does he watch the Seattle Seahawks (some American football game)? He'll learn when he grows up.
[Dave Moore] Squad Number 5 - Dave Moore
Dave is the General Manager of the club and began his career in England with Glodwick Athletic. He then played for Queen Street Congs. in the Oldham Sunday School League. After several years of retirement he was enticed back to the game when he signed for Parkside in the Oldham Sunday League. His first stint of management was when he jointly took over Netherhey FC with Phil Stevenson. In 1990 Dave moved back to Canada to return to Semiahmoo for whom he played one season in 1987/88 when they were an over 30's team. Dave's highlights include scoring one of the goals in a shock 4-1 OSL shield win over favourites Cannon Street Rangers and playing on Boundary Park, home of his beloved Oldham Athletic. The holder of many club records; his feats include the most own goals conceded and the most penalties conceded - both are in double figures!
[Pat Rohla] Squad Number 6 - Pat Rohla
Pat coached his 'soccer' at Trinity Western University and now has a side line of supplying black market animals to unsuspecting team-mates and foreign investors. Pat now has in excess of 100 games for the Classics.
[Alan Massender] Squad Number 7 - Alan Massender
Is renown for receiving naive young calves and innocent kids from his unnamed peddler friend of a team- mate. The errant receiver denies all allegience to such activities but video surveilance has conclusive evidence that he, and his supplier, have in fact indulged in underhanded abuse to unsuspecting, and previously innocent, wildlife. Also known as the Black Adder, the Scotsman has had his zipper removed from his kilt so that the sheep won't hear him approach.
[Larry Thorlakson] Squad Number 8 - Larry Thorlakson
Larry retired from the game but was enticed back although he found the electrifying pace difficult to handle. The club physio pieced him back together with the use of duct tape and he never looked back. He has now returned to his best form and has made more than 250 appearances for the club.
[Gordie macklin] Squad Number 9 - Gordie Macklin
Gordie underwent some torrid medical times of late but still came out smiling. After half a season out through injury he returned with renewed vigour and some venom, so much so that he went overboard with decisions that went against him. Although totally out of character, Gordie tried to maintain his decorum but tended to lose it at the important times. He likes stirring it!
[David Breen] Squad Number 10 - David Breen
David is another prospect from the Overwaitea youth policy who decided to make his comeback to football after a long lay-off. The club has high aspirations for the player as he is quite tall and wears a silly hat.
[Gene Crowley] Squad Number 11 - Gene Crowley
Gene is Irish! he has played over 100 games for the club and has red hair!
[Daryl Lawrie] Squad Number 12 - Daryl Lawrie
Daryl cuts down trees as well as defenders. He applied for a job advertised for 'tree fellerers' with a colleague but had to withdraw from the interview as he said, "There are only two of us!"
[Chuck McGill] Squad Number 13 - Chuck McGill
Chuck signed in the 1997/98 season and quickly established himself as a 'twin tower' at the centre of defence. He has made over 250 appearances and as hit 50 goals. "I graduated from Semiahmoo High School and played for the team in the BC Championships. My juvenile soccer was with the Peace Arch Soccer Association and I was selected to play on the Under 18 Select team that won the BC Championships. I also played for a number of Premier clubs in the Vancouver Area. I was fortunate to win the Bradner and Packingham Cups on a number of occasions and played in the BC Summer Games and Provincial Men's finals as well. After a stint in Australia, where I played for a Perth team, I signed for the Classics and have been playing for them since. I enjoy the camaraderie and competitiveness that the Classics are well known for."
[Jody Nelson] Squad Number 14 - Jody Nelson
Jody is a newcomer to the team and an exciting prospect.
[Chris Arcari] Squad Number 15 - Chris Arcari
Chris originally made his debut for the Classics back in the summer of 1996 when his hat-trick helped the Classics to a 4-2 win over Stingers #2. His return to the team has been a welcome addition to the back line and he now has over 70 goals in more than 200 appearances.
[Lorenzo Arcari] Squad Number 16 - Lorenzo Arcari
Twin brother of Chris which confuses the team no end! If you are not sure, Lorenzo is a firefighter and Chris is a player who likes to run up and down with his squirter.
[Jim Eden] Squad Number 17 - Jim Eden
Jim retired as Team Coach in 2017 after holding the role, on and off, since he came to the club in 1992. He is currently the all time leading goalscorer with over 130 goals for the club. "I came to Canada in 1974 and signed for Wesburn in the Pacific Coast League. After several seasons, moved to North Delta and became player/coach for North Delta United in the Fraser Valley Premier League. Retired for about 5 years and then found my real calling by playing with this team. Highlights of career are winning and losing with the best bunch of guys that play this game and to have held the leading scorer of all time for the Classics was the icing on the cake."
[Brian Griffiths] Squad Number 18 - Brian Griffiths
Brian is another player who has worked his way through the the youth ranks. He is now an established player who puts lots of energy into his play and a bright future is expected from this youngster.
[Sherman Foster] Squad Number 19 - Sherman Foster
It is reputed that Sherman is a German but the fact is currently unproved, although it does rhyme. A powerful defender with a knack of scoring.
[Robbie Keam] Squad Number 20 - Robbie Keam
Robbie's career has suffered through injury problems and he is always undertaking a comeback. A versatile player who is good enough to play in ANY position.
[Warren Crowley] Squad Number 21 - Warren Crowley
Warren has made over 150 appearances with a strike rate of almost a goal every three games. It seems like he has been with the team forever!
[Pat O'Krane] Squad Number 23 - Pat O'Krane
Pat is a powerful player with a nose for finding the net, although his shots can, at times, be erratic.
[Willie Dixon] Squad Number 24 - Willie Dixon
After making several guest appearances for the Classics in tournaments, Willie has recently signed a permanent contract in a transfer from Britannia FC. He is a versatile player with a knack of finding the net in important games.
[Alfie Deglan] Alfie Deglan
Alfie (the beetroot) can be seen puffing up and down the field from his midfield position. A fierce competitor who previously worked for NASA as a tester. They had watched him shooting at a previous game and decided that he could kick a rocket higher than they could fire one. Alfie has made over 250 appearances with a creditable 75 plus goals being contributed.
