NEW YORK – In a very pleasant and family atmosphere, NY Greek American Soccer Club celebrated 76th anniversary at its dinner dance on March 5, at Laterna restaurant in Bayside. After two years of inactivity, the historic organization honored Andreas Kaliambakos and Dimos Roubas, while also distributing trophies to the 9-year-old children who attended.
The atmosphere was congenial with family and all the supporters of Greek American present. The only negative element was the absence of representatives from other local clubs, as noted by President of Greek American Nikos Arvanitis. After thanking those who honored Greek American with their presence, he expressed his dissatisfaction with “all the clubs since not a single representative of them attended.”
A frigid November 20th Sunday was a Greek derby day with the NY Pancyprian Freedoms playing the NY Greek Americans in the Metropolitan division of the Eastern Premier Soccer League (EPSL) and in the Over 30 division of the Long Island Soccer Football League (LISFL).
