Gunners Kelby Shaw Has Man U Tryout End in Disappointment PDF Print E-mail
Kelby Shaw at Old Trafford 2 Kelby Shaw at Old Trafford 3

Kelby "Kez" Shaw of the GGSL Gunners gave it all he had, but in the end earning a place on one of the world's most fabled teams proved to be too much. Earlier this year when the EPL's Manchester United made a habit of giving up late goals, Manager Jose Mourinho expressed interest in the GGSL shutdown defender who flew to Manchester for the holidays. Unfortunately for Shaw, much improved results by the Red Devils killed his chances of earning a spot. "No, he will not be on the squad." declared Mourinho at his weekly press conference. "His quality is undeniable, I repeat, undeniable, but when we win and everyone plays well, I repeat, everyone plays well, how I tell Smalling or Blind they must sit?"  The above photos (L to R) taken before his childhood dream of playing for United was crushed, show a smiling Shaw posing in the Man U dressing room with his #23 jersey, and in front of the stands at Old Trafford.

David Bowyer Award for Lakis

Congratulations to GGSL President Lakis Karyofyllis who has been named a winner of the 2016 David Bowyer "Volunteer of the Year" award!  The award is presented annually to 3 individuals adjudged to have provided outstanding volunteer service to the Gloucester soccer community ("Ottawa Gloucester Soccer Club") on behalf of the recreational, competitive and adult ("Seniors") branches of the OGSC.  Lakis was recognized by the Gloucester Senior Committee for his work with the GGSL.
 
"Lakis has demonstrated outstanding leadership in helping guide the GGSL, which has truly become one of the finest examples of a men's recreational soccer league in Canada", said Gloucester Seniors' President Keith Corkum.  "Lakis always had an ambitious vision for  the GGSL, but he is also prepared to roll up his sleeves and put in the hard work to achieve that vision.  He has insisted on a principled management of the GGSL.  This includes his commitment to ensuring league access for players of various skill levels, his belief in the critical importance of sportmanship & fairplay within the league, and his efforts to promote a fun, friendly atmosphere among the GGSL teams & players."  Corkum concluded with, "No doubt men's recreational soccer in East Ottawa has been the big beneficiary of Lakis' efforts and as such he is a most-worthy recipient of this year's Volunteer of the Year award."
 
Lakis joins other esteemed winners of the David Bowyer award in the GGSL, including Keith Corkum, Paolo Filipponi, J.C. Daigle, George Papandreou and Alan Pfahl.
