Golden Eagles Day at Lottoland

Some of Manly's finest players will enjoy a lap of honour at Lottoland on Sunday, July 16, as part of the popular Golden Eagles Day.

To be held as part of the match day entertainment against Wests Tigers, the Golden Eagles (Sea Eagles Old Boys) Association recognises former Manly players and officials across all grades.

For the past two years, the Golden Eagles Day has been well received by the crowd who have enjoyed the chance to see some of their former favourite players.

Some of the confirmed Manly players attending include Max Krilich, Graham Eadie, Cliff Lyons, Mark Carroll, Daniel Gartner, Craig Hancock, Fred Jones, Ian Thompson, Ian Martin, Matt Ballin, Terry Hill, Michael Robertson, Chris Hicks, Bill Bradstreet, Mark Brokenshire, David Hosking, Shannon Nevin, Mark Willoughby, plus many more.

Prior to the match, the Golden Eagles will again be marching from Manly Leagues Club to Lottoland from 12.20pm.

They will then take part in a lap of honour pre-match before forming a guard of honour for the NRL kick-off at 2pm.

Golden Eagles Chairman Mark Bryant is encouraging all Sea Eagles supporters to join the March ahead of an epic Sunday afternoon clash.

“We are again expecting upwards of 150 former players and we’d love as many of our maroon and white supporters to join us for the walk to Lottoland,” Bryant said.

“This is a march that recognises our history, from our social home of the Manly Leagues Club to our spiritual home ground, with players of all eras that have represented the Sea Eagles.”
