Shamrocks keen on keeping veteran players

Rhys Duch is returning for his 10th season

A number of key players are returning to the Victoria Shamrocks this season.

Attackman, Rhys Duch, returns for his 10th season, and assistant captains Matt Yager and Greg Harnett will bring strength to the team’s defense.

Ben McCullough, last season’s most popular player, as voted by the fans, will also suit up in green and white. Chris Wardle and Casey Jackson are coming back to the ‘Rocks after successful seasons in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

In a statement, Chris Welch, Shamrocks’ general manager, was happy to let fans know who would be back this season.

“As illustrated by this group of players and others yet to be announced, we’re keeping much of our core intact as we strive to get back on top in a very competitive league. We think our fans will like the blend of veteran experience with the injection of youth that’s coming into our lineup,” he said.
