Biography: 2001 King of Donair Men’s Soccer Team

In 2001, King of Donair became the first Nova Scotia club team to win a national club championship at any level. They took the National Club Championship title without suffering any losses.

After crushing Saskatchewan 5-1, King of Donair faced British Columbia’s Victoria Gorge FC in the championship title game. Victoria Gorge was undefeated and had not been scored upon in its pool, but the Halifax players soon destroyed that record, finishing with a 4-1 victory over the BC team.

The Canadian Soccer Association listed Halifax King of Donair as the third most successful team in the history of the championships, and five of the team members were named Nova Scotia Soccer League all-stars. That year, they also won the Premier Division of the Nova Scotia Soccer League with 11 wins and three draws in 14 games.

Members of the 2001 team included the following: Mike Hasiuk, Tim Mullen, Carl MacGillvray, Dzevad Imocanin, Colin March, Jay Robinson, Ian Clark, Ewen Lyttle, Mesut Mert, Vinnie Mert, Blake Geddis, Rob Adams, Trevor Reddick, Gray Zurheide, Mike Brabent, Brian Wishart, Dan Fournier, Glen Sullivan, Peter Lawrence, Mark Gardiner, Eduardo Farias, Tim Stephenson, and coaches George Iatrou and Tony Eghan, along with managers Angelo Cianfaglione and Mourad Farid, and sponsor Vagelli Panopalis.
