CSL CLUBS INVITE PLAYERS……Toronto Croatia move to Hershey Centre

Toronto Croatia, the most decorated club in the CSL with championship victories 1970 through 73, 2004, 2007, 2011 and 2012, will be playing out of the Hershey Centre in Mississauga while Etobicoke’s Centennial Stadium undergoes renovation for the Pan American games. The First Division team’s home opener will be on Saturday, May 24. While the Toronto Croatia first team was notably absent from the championship final following a third-place league finish, the reserve squad made an outstanding return to competition to finish on top of the Second Division, to then reach the final of the Second Division Championship. Igor Beram, the second squad GM credited with putting together the winning combination in 2013, is opening the door to players looking for a first entry step into professional soccer. Players are invited to send a curriculum vitae to torontocroatiareserves@live.ca and those who qualify will be invited to a trial at the Hershey Dome Field, Mississauga, on Friday, March 21 from 9 – 11 pm. Similarly, North York Astros are inviting players to make application for a trial through the club’s website at www.northyorkastros.ca. The team’s home opener will be played on May 25 at Esther Shiner Stadium. The Canadian Soccer League continues to encourage players considering entry into semi-professional soccer to contact their nearest CSL...

Partnership with American Soccer League a Historic Occasion

TEN TEAMS WILL KICKOFF CSL SEASON MID-MAY…  Partnership with American Soccer League a historic occasion Ten teams will kickoff a new First Division season and launch a new era in the Canadian Soccer League mid-May, a six-month schedule supplemented by cross-border games against teams in the soon-to-be launched American Soccer League playing out of the northeastern United States. It will be a historic venture for the semi-professional CSL, which was originally launched as the National Soccer League in 1926 and re-branded through the years to become the CSL as we know it today. Now operating as a private league – which the league has elected to do on more than one occasion in its history – the CSL will have a working relationship with its U.S. counterpart to also include youth player development and marketing. The ten teams to kickoff the CSL top division in the new season are Brampton City Utd, Burlington SC, London City, Kingston FC, Niagara United, North York Astros, SC Waterloo, Serbian White Eagles, Toronto Croatia and York Region Shooters. Teams for the CSL Second Division will be announced March 31. SC Waterloo, which provides a much-needed professional soccer presence in the densely-populated youth soccer region that exists in the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo and the regional soccer community that reaches out to out as far as Cambridge, Guelph and Stratford, are the current CSL champions following a 3-1 victory over Kingston FC in the Championship Final November 3. The southwestern Ontario club also captured the Second Division title when their second string defeated Toronto Croatia Reserves on the same day, the first time a CSL club has taken both titles in the same season. “It certainly was a great season when all of the hard work paid off and we want to build on our success and do even more to provide attractive soccer and help in player development throughout the region, all while the Canadian Soccer League continues to grow as a strong member of the Canadian soccer community,” said Tony Kocis, president of SC Waterloo. SC Waterloo are scheduled for their opening home game at Warrior Field in Waterloo on Sunday, May 25, a day set by several clubs for their home opener. Serbian White Eagles will have Lamport Stadium in Toronto’s west-end as their home ground in 2014 and have scheduled their home opener for Saturday, May 31. The complete 2014 CSL schedule will be released early...

Toronto Croatia Wins A Squeaker

Toronto Croatia gained an important 1-0 victory over league-leading Kingston FC to remain unbeaten and nudge closer to the top of the CSL First Division, while St. Catharines Wolves picked up their second win of the season, a 2-0 defeat of Niagara United, two games in the CSL First Division Saturday. Following a scoreless first half at the Queen’s West Field in Kingston, Toronto Croatia striker Tihomir Maletic struck the only goal at the 60th minute mark, a low drive past Kingston goalkeeper Jaroslav Tesar. The goal came following a close-call by Maletic four minutes earlier that was saved by Tesar who pushed the ball on to the crossbar for the save. Kingston forward Guillaume Surot came close to equalizing late in the second half, but the 1-0 score held to the final whistle. Two goals by St. Catharines Wolves forward Brett Laroque gave his side their first win since May 24 in the game with Niagara United at Kalar Park in Niagara Falls, the first goal coming at 42 minutes when Laroque beat Niagara goalkeeper John De Luca following a breakaway and it was 1-0 at the interval. Laroque struck his second goal at 71 minutes for a 2-0 St. Catharines lead, the score at the final whistle.

Unbeaten Toronto Croatia Seeks Top Spot

Unbeaten Toronto Croatia Seeks Top Spot

Toronto Croatia are anxious to move into a more familiar top spot in the CSL First Division and Saturday’s clash with Kingston FC will provide the opportunity  to be closer to that coveted position the current champions have been waiting for. The key, it would appear, will rest on the extent to which the Toronto side can hold the prolific Kingston high scoring sharpshooters responsible for leading the league in goals so far this season. The most outstanding player to find the net more than anyone else in the league is French-born Guillaume Surot with 14 to his credit and proving to be a handful for an opposing defence throughout the 90 minutes. But he’s not alone, with midfielders Jason Massie and Catalin Lichioiu accounting for 10 goals between them – always at the ready to find the net if not setting up the ever-dangerous Surot. While Toronto Croatia is the only unbeaten team in the CSL First Division, Kingston has an impressive 6-0-0 record at home, which makes Saturday’s match even more intriguing. Brampton City Utd  should not be overlooked and a sharing of the points by Kingston and Toronto Croatia on Saturday would be just fine for the GTA team which visits an improving SC Waterloo for an interesting contest on Sunday.
