Sergio Zanatta... he was 13 years old when his family moved from Italy to Vancouver, BC, CAN... 
 
a four-time Canada Soccer Championship winner (1966, 1969, 1977, 1978), a three-time Pacific Coast League winner (1968-69, 1969-70, 1970-71), and Western Canada League winner (1969)... a three-time all-star selection over a five-year span from 1969 to 1971... over the course of one decade, he was the Pacific Coast League’s eighth-highest scorer in the 1960s with 41 goals scored (even though he only debuted in 1965)... 
 
wrote Jeff Cross after one match in December 1966, Zanatta was “the darling of the highly vocal Italan soccer community... (he) could just be the best left winger to his this town since the days of Dave Brown”... in a 1967 all-stars program, was noted as “one of the finest prospects to break into senior company in the past decade”... also once noted, his “devil-may-care attitude plays havoc with oppositions defence”...
