The 4th episode of Cal South’s great, new soccer podcast, “The Bear and the Ball,” is available to stream or download for your listening pleasure today!

Host Nick Webster – Cal South’s Vice-President of Adult Soccer and a former FOX/EPL broadcaster – talks with Bernie Towers, president of Coast Soccer League.

Bernie will talk about learning to love the game as a child as he moved from South Africa to England, dealing with running a soccer league through the pandemic, and current issues in the local soccer landscape.

A deep focus is placed on the direness of the referee shortage in Southern California, and why it is important for everyone in the game – parents, coaches, leagues, and even the players – to be part of the solution in encouraging more people to become referees.

Join us for 45 minutes of informative soccer talk!
