Old Boys at the Herald Sun Shield games

August 2, 2016

A large number of our Old Boys, including current AFL Collingwood fullback Nathan Brown (SPC 2002-07) proudly donned the green, white and blue and turned out to cheer- St Patrick’s College during the Herald Sun Shield finals campaign.

While it was a loss of the narrowest of margins in the Herald Sun Shield Grand Final at the MCG on Saturday, the finals campaign have provided a great opportunity for the SPC community to unite.

Current students, parents and friends have attended the games alongside some of our Old Boys, including many past 1st XVIII players and some of whom have gone onto AFL careers including Collingwood fullback Nathan Brown and West Coast Eagles midfielder Liam Duggan (SPC 2009-14).

For the first time, the St Patrick’s College Old Collegians Association hosted pre-match events prior to the semi and grand final at the nearby Emerald Hotel, in South Melbourne and Mount View Hotel, in Richmond.

The functions offered a chance for our Old Collegians to enjoy a pre-match drink and conversation prior to the games.
