Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club Soccer for life!

Three weeks ago I was privilaged to be on a coaches' training course led by Dominic Mobilio. I left each session as I hope the players I coach will
leave my sessions: with hope, enthusiasm, excitement and a huge feel good factor about what soccer in the community is all about... that was and
is Dominic's legacy to me and thousands like me. Not since the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster have I experienced such an outpouring of grief from a
community united by a common love of soccer. Unfortunately, it is not until such events occur do we truly appreciate what we had and what has been
lost. It is testimony to Dominic's involvement on
a grass roots level in the soccer community that so many tributes have poured in and that so many lives have been affected by this tragic loss. From coaching my daughter Emma on rainy Saturdays, to training me to coach others whenever our paths crossed his infectious energy and enthusiasm was there in abundance.
May his good work continue through the foundations he laid and may he rest in peace.
I wish there were more like him.
