Alan W. Southard... served in the Royal Air Force... he was 28 years old when he arrived in Canada in 1957 (via New York)... served as Vice-President of Peoples Jewellers... oversaw nearly quadruple growth of the Canadian Youth Soccer Association over 12 years (from 52,000 players in 1969 to 200,000 players in 1981)... 
 
wrote Eric King in 1981, Southard “has made a distinguished contribution to the growth and development of soccer generally and youth soccer particularly at the national level... the growth of youth soccer under Mr. Southard’s direction can only be described as phenomenal”... also wrote King in 1981, “Mr. Southard is one of those rare breed of volunteers without whom the development of a comprehensive amateur sports program would not be possible”...
