Liam Reid made his Senior ‘A’ Debut Friday, going from the stands to the crease
Dressed in shorts and sandals, Liam Reid showed up at 100.3 The Q Centre on Friday night to watch the Victoria Shamrocks – not play for them.
A netminder for the Intermediate ‘A’ Shamrocks, Reid ended up on the bench of the senior team when it was learned Matt Flindell was unable to dress. General Manager & Vice President Chris Welch was left scrambling for a replacement and found it closer than expected when he reached out to the manager of the Intermediate squad.
“I had just sat in my seat when the general manager of my team, Rod Wood, came down and said I had to dress,” explained the 17-year-old. “I came to the game to hang out and relax with my friends, I definitely did not expect this to happen."
