Cowichan United open season Saturday at Rotary

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.

“We will be a group with experience at the back and youth up front,” new coach Ryan Flynn said. “We 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.”

Flynn is excited to get on the pitch at Rotary Park, which has been described as “top-notch.”

“With the new field coming in next year this is a great start that we have here with our club,” Flynn said. “It gives us a chance to become a top club in the VISL again.”

Div. 1 Cowichan LMG will open on the road against Westcastle United this Saturday.
