said Bruce Twamley in 2018, “Victoria was a great experience for me... many of the players (in the league) were immigrants, so they were very capable players and they provided a good standard of play in the Pacific Coast League. We were mostly a British team with some Canadian guys and we played in the Coast League against teams from Vancouver”... also said Bruce Twamley in 2018, “I struggled because I was a boy playing against some pretty tough characters who were hard-nosed players. When I left and went to England several years later, I came up against tough guys in England, but it was even a tougher element in Coast League.... they were a tough breed”...

wrote Geraldine Donnelly in 1992, “Bruce Twamley is an excellent High Performance Centre coach.
