Burin Peninsula Soccer Hall of Fame; Coach’s Corner "Hall of Shame"

By Gord Dunphy

In 1986 the Burin Peninsula Soccer Association (BPSA) set up a Hall of Fame.
A person may be inducted into this prestigious category as a player, a builder, or a combination of both.

Coach’s Corner, in July of 2001, has set up a Burin Peninsula Soccer Hall of Shame for those elite players and builders that somehow have been omitted from the Burin Peninsula Hall of Fame.

First of all I would like to congratulate and recognize the present BPSA Hall of Fame Inductees. To date the following people have been recognized, some for their superior play and others for their structuring and promotion of the game.

Coach’s Corner would like to list its Hall of Shame members as I feel it’s a discredit that you as individuals have somehow been overlooked.

However, we as soccer folks may be the one’s who should be inducted into the "Hall of Blame" because the Burin Peninsula Soccer Association Hall of Fame selection committee gives any individual, family member, community representative, or local soccer association the opportunity to submit names of creditable candidates for selection.

I encourage people to make sure that personalities who should be rewarded for their contributions to the development and growth of soccer are recognized. With this recognition, you should be inducted into the Burin Peninsula Soccer Hall of Fame.

I would like to apologize to any elite soccer personality if I left you off my list.

The point I wish to make is that although there are many deserving individuals already inducted into the Hall of Fame, many more should be inducted.
