NLSA - U13 Atlantic Bronze Medalist  -- Club's MVP

 Special times for Mike Edmunds
Claire Kean is a member of St. John's Soccer Association  U -14 NLSA Provincial League. Provincially she is a member of the NLSA Under -13 squad. Claire scored the all important goal against PEI in her team's 1-0 victory while clinching the Bronze Medal. There is no doubt after watching her play this past weekend, she has a bright future ahead of her in ladies soccer.  Her Under - 13 NLSA team was coached by Nicole Moores and Raeleen Baggs , two of the better females to ever play soccer in Newfoundland and two great NLSA qualified coaches.  While at the St. John's Provincial League level, Claire is presently being coached by her step-dad Mike Edmunds. Mike has had Claire under his wing since her early childhood days when all he would talk about was getting her involved with playing the sport of soccer.  Mike has sure helped Claire with her soccer development.  He was a player who had played in the St. John's  soccer system. He then went on to reach monumental heights as an official;he started out at the local level, advanced to provincial level and went on to become a National Certified referee. He is currently the Director of NLSA officials. After watching him take in the Atlantic tournament this past weekend in St. John's, I would have to say the proudest achievement of  them all was watching and coaching his step-daughter play while wearing the St. John's and the  NLSA stripes.
