Liam Stanley has been named the 2013 Canadian Para Soccer Player of the Year by the Canada Para Soccer coaching staff.

"As a 16 year old, Liam had a year in 2013 that not many players his age have had at the senior level,” said coach Drew Ferguson. “He was a dominant factor for us at the national level.”

This was the third year with the Canadian Para Soccer program for the fullback from Victoria. He played in 10 international matches in 2013, helping Canada post a record of four wins, two draws and four losses.

Stanley earned man-of-the-match honours in a loss to England in April and in a win over Venezuela in August. He scored the opening goal in the win over the Venezuelans.

Stanley is the second winner of the Canadian Para Soccer award. The honour was introduced in 2012 during the Canadian Soccer Association’s centennial year.
