United Footballer Of The Week

Rich Fast
Bays United

VISL President’s Award Winner 2015 Rich Fast was recently honoured with winning the VISL President’s Award at the VISL Awards banquet on Friday, April 11th. Rich is a deserving recipient who has put in many years of service to the game he loves. An ongoing Fast family joke is that every year he says “next year I am going to step back a bit”. Well I’m pretty sure no one considers coaching five teams to be taking a step back. There is no shortage of good stories or interesting times when it comes to Rich’s current playing or coaching tenure.  To read the whole speech from the Award’s Night see here –  RichFastSpeech

We need your help with nominations for LIWSA's footballer of the week. It doesn't have to be a player, you can nominate a club volunteer, loyal fan, coach or manager, soccer family, or a team. LIWSA does this on a rotating basis with LISA and VISL, which means every 3 weeks throughout the season. If we receive a number of nominations, we will post on the website in the order we receive them.
