As the sun beats down on our slightly overweight, post-Pemberton poisoned corpses, it has dawned upon us that August long weekend is nearly upon us. To most, Auggy Long symbolizes a weekend of lake-filled fun. To GFC though, it's that special time of the year when we dust off the Total 90s, polish the Preds and tape up the holes in our Kings. As everyone laments the dwindling of Summer, we rejoice in finally getting to work on that beach body with a healthy dose of pre-season training. If like us, you've spent the last two months on the couch watching as Ron Vlaar and Benedikt Hoewedes played their way into your heart but are now looking to trade Cheetos for Catenaccio, we want to hear from you.
As Vancouver's 31st (estimated) most illustrious amateur footballing family is on the hunt for the next Rickie Lambert, as Gastown has a penchant for molding raw talent into beetroot canners. Following last season's heartbreakingly narrow relegation from the First Division of Vancouver's Metro Soccer League, The Iron are looking to bolster their ranks with committed, competent and sociable footballers.
We're based out of Andy Livingstone during the season and train twice a week. We'll be starting Pre-season the week of August 4th and so if you're looking to get back into competitive football, make some more friends, or if you're new to the city and need football to survive then send us an email - we look forward to hearing from you!
