Three past Peninsula Soccer Club members were crowned the winners of the 2012 Reserve Challenge Cup.

The three men, Drew Brittain, team coach and player, and team members Jared Atchison and Aaron Murphy competed in the cup as members of the Victoria United Reserve team of the Pacific Coast Soccer League – a elite level league that features teams from B.C. and Washington State.

All three men had been members of the Peninsula Soccer Club as youth players before going on to compete with Vancouver Island Soccer League on various teams.

The tournament, which was held July 28 and 29 in Chilliwack, also drew teams from the lower mainland and the Okanagan, both of which the Victoria United Reserve team had to go up against to win the cup.

“This group of players ranging in age from 15 to 23 years of age all banded together to form a successful summer league team,” said Victoria United Reserves manager Mark Brittain.

Under the direction of coach and player Brittain, the team drewfrom players from several Vancouver Island Soccer League men’s teams including Vic West, Gordon Head, Lakehill, Gorge, Sooke, Bays and Cowichan.
