The Jr. Shamrocks are holding a special retro jersey night June 30 during their game against the Langley Thunder. A special retro jersey will be worn by the team, the jersey encompassing features from the 1962 Shamrocks, 1976 Macdonalds Bread team and the 1988 Victoria-Esquimalt Legion, all Minto Cup winning teams.
As it is the 30th anniversary of the 1988 team, players from that cup-winner will be in attendance and recognized during the first intermission. Some players whose names might be recognized are Grant Hamilton, Greg and Grant Pepper and Darren Reisig among others. Prior to the 4:00 pm game start, there will be a tailgate party in the parking lot, burgers by Mr. Mike’s Langford.
We have planned a number of items available at a silent auction and as always, there will be a 50/50 draw. The booster booth will be open. Team pictures will be available for fans, and players will be available post-game to talk and sign the pictures. Prior to the Jr. ‘A’ game, the Tier 1 Jr. ‘B’ Shamrocks will be in action at 1:00 against the Maple Ridge Burrards.
Minor players can come early and have their shots timed in the box between 11:00 and 12:00. A full day of lacrosse history and action at the 100.3 The Q Centre, Saturday, June 30. Minor players, wearing a team jersey can get half-price admission for 1 parent.
