Wildcats Proud to Unveil "Jeff Fish Memorial Shield"!
At our recent AGM, our newly elected 2014 Club Executive decided to unveil our list of Hamilton Wildcats Life Members on a newly minted plaque, as well as unanimously voting on naming the Club's highest honour after one of the greatest Wildcats to wear the "yellow & black".
In an effort to celebrate a number of Hamilton Wildcat "greats", for their tireless efforts both on and off the field over our Club's 23 year history, our Executive has voted on a star-studded list of "Life Members" as well as setting the criteria for future Wildcats to earn this great distinction. The make this nomination even more flattering for those elected, we've decided to dedicate the "Life Membership" plaque after one of the most respected and hardest working Wildcats in our Club's history, who sadly lost his courageous battle with cancer in 2012, Jeff Fish.

*have been an active member of the Club for a minimum of 10+ years
