NLSA name new Director of Officials

Mike Edmunds

The NLSA has named Mike Edmunds as its new "Director of Officials ". Mike has been one of Newfoundland's top whistle blowers in the sport of soccer in Newfoundland for the past five years. He certainly brings experience combined with knowledge and a passion for the sport to his new position. Mike replaces NLSA Hall of Famer, Brian Walsh who has retired from the game. I would personally like to congratulate Mike and thank Brian for his years of service to the game of soccer in Newfoundland.

Johnny Breen

Johnny Breen - Coach, Holy Cross Men's Soccer Team

Jake Stanford, the coach of the defending Challenge Cup Champions Holy Cross, has stepped down as head coach to assume head coaching duties with the NLSA "Girls" Canada Games Team. Stanford had been the coach of the Holy Cross Men's team for the past three years. He led Holy Cross to the Provincial Championship each of these years.
Johnny Breen, who is Holy Cross's newly appointed coach is no slouch when it comes to Provincial Soccer in Newfoundland. He was a standout during his playing days. As a coach, he also has very impressive credentials and his certification makes him nationally qualified.
