The Junior and Intermediate Shamrocks will be playing in the Shamrock Alumni, John Crowther Memorial, Charity game on Friday April 10, at the Q center 7pm.

(ISN) – Each year the alumni plays one game to help a team raise money, and to let the old guys play again. This year they will be playing a mix of Jr. A and Intermediate A Shamrocks, the proceeds will go to the Jr Shamrocks and the Alumni.

This year is a special game as they have reintroduced the John Crowther Memorial game. (the alumni game will be called this from now on). As many of you may remember, we played the John Crowther game for many years, but it has not been played for a long time.

This year Betty Crowther, John’s mom (96 years old) will be doing the first face off. Two of John’s nephews, Lucas Crowther (Jr. A) and Mason McNeil (Pee Wee JDF) will be doing the face off too.

The Shamrock Alumni will feature players such as:


Devin Daleep Marty Oneill

Last year the Shamrock alumni raised $6500. They have given it all back to the community in the form of alumni scholarships, sponsoring the Shamrocks, Jr A Shamrocks, and Intermediate Shamrocks, and they paid the fees of four young minor lacrosse players who could not afford to play.

Tickets will be sold on a walk up basis only, $10.00 general seating. Children 12 and under free of charge.
