A strong mix of veterans and newcomers will take the field this Saturday as Cowichan United inaugurates the new Rotary Park field with their Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 2 season opener against Sagres Highlanders.
â€œWe will be a group with experience at the back and youth up front,â€ new coach Ryan Flynn said. â€œWe have a promising mix of skill and heart. Our team goal is to be top three in the league, gaining the experience for the young guys for next year.â€
Flynn is excited to get on the pitch at Rotary Park, which has been described as â€œtop-notch.â€
â€œWith the new field coming in next year this is a great start that we have here with our club,â€ Flynn said. â€œIt gives us a chance to become a top club in the VISL again.â€
Div. 1 Cowichan LMG will open on the road against Westcastle United this Saturday.
