                                Peninsula Soccer League 1984-2021
                                      South San Francisco A.C.
                                         Best XI - Starters


Danny GALLEGOS ( DF ) 1984-99                  
One of the most feared defenders in the PSL. His ability to
strip the ball away from an opponent and start a counter 
attack, led to scoring chances."The Rock" of the back line
Dan's play was dominating, eventually becoming a playing
assistant coach with the team. He was every years MVP
Pat SALDANHA ( DF ) 1984-95                         
Consistent steady performer at the outside back. Opposing
forwards had a difficult time trying to get around and past
this imposing defender. His ball handling under pressure
made him a reliable confident presence on defense. His
creativity led to a solid transition game for the team.
Roberto ALVARADO ( MF ) 1992-99, 2001-02
Classy, creative, a magical player on the pitch.An artist
painting a canvas as he moved freely across the field.
He could strike from anywhere. His free kicks were deadly
usually leading to the keeper retrieving the ball from the
back of the net. Great vision, the master of his craft
Birger NESTEBY ( MF ) 1994-97 98-99
The "Hot" Norwegian, one of the most talented players to 
play for SSF. He was at a different level & could see the 
game quicker than most. Always came up with a big goal 
when needed. He was "Mr Clutch".Never missed a PK. A
great teammate. God took him far to early, we miss him !!
Danny MARCUCCI ( F ) 1984-95, 98-99
SSFAC's all time leading goal scorer, and its heart & soul.
"Cuch" was a force near the goal & often carried the team 
on his back as its only scoring threat. He'd beat you with 
speed or lull you to sleep & strike like a cat.A deadly shot 
and tough to body off the ball,he intimidated all opponents.
Daniele CAPOFERRI ( GK ) 2001-09
In his 8 seasons with the team, "Capo" was the reason
for the teams success as his remarkable play in goal along
with his leadership abilities made the defense into one of
the best in the PSL. He won games for the team with his
brilliant play and currently is the club's assistant coach
Tim KINGSBURY ( DF ) 1992-98
Strong, quick, dominant, effortless describes this powerful
defensive player for AC. His speed allowed him to
overtake many forwards and his attacking offensive
skills often led to goals and numerous scoring chances for
his teammates. Gave 100 % each & every time he played
Thoeun HUY-CHAN ( DF ) 2003-09
The "enforcer" was as solid as any player to wear the SSF
shirt. Always gave 100% as one of the most respected
players in the PSL. His relentless pursuit of the ball wore
down his opponents, and it was tough to get past, thru
or around him. He dominated at every level. A class act.
Bobby QUINLAN ( MF ) 2010-2017
Can dictate the outcome of a game by himself. Superb touch,
excellent vision, tremendous creativity, a deadly shot. He
knows what your about to do, before you do. A natural born
leader, that gives everything for his team. His brilliance is
unmatched on the pitch, a player you would pay to watch.
Fabio MARQUES ( MF, F ) 2006-2017
The "High Flying Brazilian" who is the all time points leader
for SSF. Can score with either foot,& positions himself like
an assassin near the goal. Will score from in close, or from
long range with a lethal strike. A clever passer & can dish
off great assists to teammates. Dangerous with the ball
Blair SMITH ( F, MF ) 2005, 2010-2016
The finisher,he can score the big goals,make the big plays
& eliminate any thoughts you had of a win. He does it all,
can cover any position on the field and the player everyone
wants to emulate. Leads by example,  plays with the heart
of a champion. Free Kick specialist, a dedicated player.
             SSFAC Best XI 1984 - Present
There you have the All Time Starting XI for SSFAC. What
made these players special, is more than just the talent 
exhibited on the field. It's the  individuals they were off the

dedication, passion, and thoughtfulness for everyone
that they came in contact with. Exhibited class at all times
They wore the jersey proudly, and we are proud of them.
