SHAWN GIBSON, Special to The Guardian
With thousands of kids and adults around the Peel area getting out the checkered ball and taking to the pitch, soccer in Brampton has never looked brighter.
That future was made even clearer on Saturday with the announcement that the Brampton Stallions and Peel United Soccer Club have joined forces to create a solid base for Brampton youth soccer.
Representatives from both organizations held a press conference at The Shingar Banquet Hall on Steeles Ave. with many in attendance, both young and old.
Stallions head coach Paul Dhillon was excited about what the union meant for youth in Brampton.
“This is a very important day for everyone here, and we have worked very hard for it,” said Dhillon. “The young people in Brampton will now have a place to look forward to as far as advancement in this sport.”
