Ken was a lifelong football player, starting in his home town of Denton, Manchester, then after moving to Toronto, with the Bank of Nova Scotia, then in Montreal with Rolls Royce, Pointe Claire Reds, Midland Ross, Pointe Claire Wanderers, Greendale and Kirkland United. In 1997, after moving back to Ontario, he joined the Burlington Soccer League, where he played until injuries and a heart attack in 2006 ended his playing career. He coached the Wanderers F.C. team of the BSL until 2015, when he became too ill to carry on. Ken’s brave journey ended in 2016, and in his memory, the Ken Bradwell Soccer Tournament — held on the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend, with the support of the Burlington OldTimers Soccer Club and Burlington Soccer Club — raises funds for Joseph Brant Hospital and Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital as well as the regional Juravinski Cancer Centre, where Ken was followed for Indolent Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma which was diagnosed in 2005.
