For soccer fans, a heads up Qualicum Beach Rec Fields will be soccer central Sunday as the Shady Rest Eagles FC kicks off its season with a full slate of games.

The Shady’s Over 35 side will be putting on a league round-robin tournament, and the Over 60s play their home opener also at the Qualicum Beach rec at high noon.

“This will be an exciting weekend of Masters soccer,” said longtime local Shady goalkeeper Ian Miller. “I think this may be the first tournament we have hosted.”

“The crown jewel on the day will be the Over 60 game at noon with the combined Qualicum/Campbell River team versus Comox. Should be good!” said Miller.
