Club History

Pembroke Old Scholars Soccer Club (“POSSC”) was established in 1998, from which time it has competed in the Collegiate Soccer League (CSL). From fielding one team from 1998-2002, POSSC has grown rapidly in recent years and now fields 6 teams, with over 100 registered players.

The club was founded by Dave Barrett in 1998, and for the first several years it was he who almost single handedly ran the club, both on and off the field. Fittingly, Dave was made POSSC’s inaugural life member in 2005 and having himself won 3 A grade best & fairest awards, the Dave Barrett Medal is awarded to the A grade’s best & fairest player each season.

In addition to the summary of the team achievements to date listed on the following pages, it should be noted that POSSC has had a considerable number of its players receive individual awards from the CSL. In particular, the A grade captain, Michael Case, has won the award for the best & fairest player in the CSL A1 division on four occasions. For full details of individual honours won by POSSC players, please refer to the honour board.
