Golden memories for former Sea Eagles

Sunday afternoon is shaping up to be a wonderful trip down memory lane for many former Manly Warringah Sea Eagles players.

The very popular Golden Eagles Day returns to 4 Pines Park on May 14 as part of the match day entertainment for the NRL clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

More than 70 ex-players, officials, and administrators from across all grades will come together to celebrate the club's rich history, with the Golden Eagles Lap of Honour to be led by players from Manly's 1973 Grand Final winning team.

The traditional Golden Eagles March will leave from Manly Leagues Club at 2.45pm for 4 Pines Park before taking part in the lap of honour at 3.15pm.

The Sea Eagles will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Manly's 1973 Grand Final victory over the Sharks on Sunday as part of a massive day of nostalgia.

The 1973 season was one of Manly's finest, with the Sea Eagles finishing as minor premiers and premiers. Manly went on to beat Cronulla 10-7 in a brutal decider at the SCG with Bob Fulton proving the difference with two tries. 

The victory saw Manly claim back-to-back premierships after Ron Willey coached the Sea Eagles to their first premiership title in 1972.
