Given the worldly appeal of soccer, it was only natural that a person with all-worldly experience covered the sport in Greater Victoria in the 1970s.
Sportswriter Max Low was a man whose writing talents took him from New Zealand to Iran to Nottingham, England, then in 1968 to Vancouver, where he worked for Canadian Press.
Upon moving to the Island in 1971, he began what would be a 26-year stint with Victoria's daily newspapers. Starting with the morning Colonist, moving to the afternoon Times, then settling in with the merged Times-Colonist through his retirement in 1997, Low became well-known as the voice in print of soccer and rugby, an "at the match" booster of sports whose work helped increase their popularity with fans and players alike.
