On Saturday, February 25, Werner Fricker Jr. was inducted into the Eastern Pennsylvania Soccer Hall of Fame. The induction took place at the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) Awards Banquet as it does yearly. The Fricker family as well as a number of our members attended the event at the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square. Many wonderful words were said that night but we believe these ones stood out:
“To have a foundation like the German Hungarians….I wish everyone could have a foundation in this game like that.” from Werner Fricker Jr.
The other inductees in 2017 were Peter Kennedy, Robert Ong, Paul Stilley, and Jeffrey DeLuca each of which have made their marks on our game in Eastern Pennsylvania. We as a club thank them. We thank Werner for his commitment to soccer and to his club, his foundation, the German Hungarians.
