The Executive Board of the Magnuson Ford Mariners FC is delighted to announce the launch of a new Scholarship Award for graduating U18 players.

In recognition of the role in developing our Club with over 20 years of commitment, the Award will be known as the “Barry Crocker Scholarship Award”.

The scholarship of $500 will be awarded to two players, who have displayed many of the qualities that Barry brought to the Club for over 20 years…namely commitment, loyalty, fun and an unswerving love for the game.

In mid-June of each year, the Executive Board of MFMFC will select one Male & one Female to receive a scholarship of $500 each, who reflect many of the qualities that Barry displayed throughout his time at the Abbotsford Soccer Association.

In order to apply for the “Barry Crocker Scholarship Award,” players within the graduating class are asked to submit a 200 word essay reflecting their time within our Club, including particular memories, achievements and the impact your involvement with our club has had on your future plans and/or career aspirations.

In their considerations, the Executive Board will also consider the ‘Star’ rating that individuals may achieved, through the 5 Star Leadership program.

The closing date for Essay submissions will be 30th March, each year.

Submissions can be made in person at our Club Office – #2-34100 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford or sent by mail to;

    YES, Barry Crocker interest was in Rep. soccer at
    the expense of ‘house soccer team’ play, which deteriorated
    over time making it harder for young players to get on a
    team and participate in year end soccer tournaments with
    trophies etc for the kids.

    Meanwhile, parents were told to get their children involved
    in sports…Barry Krocker was too busy to put the time and
    effort into ‘house team soccer,’ because he was busy pushing
    Rep. soccer.
