Christopher Bennett... he was five years old when his family moved from London, ENG to North Vancouver, BC... worked for Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Co. in Vancouver before moving to Toronto in 1974 to join Canada Soccer’s national team “in being”... earned his Canada Soccer Coaching B Licence in 1982... earned his Canada Soccer Coaching A Licence...

said Chris Bennett in 2018, “I remember sitting in the stands at Callister Park as part of the junior program watching the senior games. I was hoping that I would one day play in the senior program in the Pacific Coast League. You could fill Callister Park. One of the rivalries was Firefighters, a big strong team, playing ahead Columbus, the Italians, which at times turned out to be full-on war”...

said Chris Bennett in 2018, “1973 was my big year because that was the year we hosted the Canada Summer Games here in British Columbia. It was a who’s who of Canadian soccer playing in that tournament. We beat Ontario in the final 1-0 and they had Peter Roe, Jack Brand, John McGrane and others. We won the game in front of a packed crowd at Swangard Stadium”...
