Senior Staff Writer

Soccer writer for the Toronto Star for 32 years, at a time when soccer was on the bottom of the list and nobody wanted to cover it. So I usually had the territory all to myself.
Contributor to several Canadian and U.S. soccer publications also at a time when soccer was an uphill struggle. Now with soccer having come into prime time attention I am retired from the main stream news media.
