HistoryEdit

Actonsabres

The Acton Sabres were founded in 1971 as a member of the South-Central Junior D Hockey League. In 1973, the league was promoted and changed to the Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League. In 1976, the league changed its name to the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League, but the Sabres had bigger ambitions and opted out of the league to join the Central Ontario Junior B Hockey League and compete against their local rival the Georgetown Gemini. The Sabres played in the Central Junior B League until 1984 when they chose to drop back down to the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League. The Sabres were no slouch in Junior B, more often celebrating winning seasons despite the odd losing season.

In 1992, the Acton Sabres moved from Acton to Erin and changed their name to the Erin Shamrocks.

In 1994, the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League merged with the Georgian Bay Junior C Hockey League to create the Georgian Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League. Since 2002, the Shamrocks have been won of the best teams in the entire league. During the 2004-05 season, the Shamrocks pulled together and won their first Georgian Mid-Ontario league championship. This allowed for the Shamrocks to push for the dream of winning the All-Ontario championship, the Clarence Schmalz Cup. They entered the provincial quarter-final against the Western Junior C Hockey League's Wingham Ironmen but ended up losing the series 4-games-to-2. Later, the Ironmen went on to the final and lost to the Niagara Junior C Hockey League's Grimsby Peach Kings.

The 2005-06 season ended with the Shamrocks finishing in fourth place. In the league quarter-final, the Shamrocks drew the fifth seed Schomberg Cougars. The Shamrocks dropped the Cougars 4-games-to-1. Erin then had to compete against the second seeded Fergus Devils in the league semi-final. This time the Shamrocks were on the losing end, 4-games-to-1.

In 2006-07, the Shamrocks again ended the season in fourth place. They entered into the league quarter-final series with the fifth seeded Stayner Siskins and found out that they were too much to handle. The Siskins dropped the Shamrocks 4-game-to-2.

The team announced on June 1, 2016 that the team was granted a year's leave of absence for the 2016-17 season.
