Flashback Friday: Mortlock Shield | GALLERY

This weekend will feel very different for many people across the Eyre Peninsula as for the first time since World War II, there will not be a Mortlock Shield carnival.

For today's Flashback Friday we have gathered together more than 160 images from the pages of the Port Lincoln Times of players, champion teams and identities that featured in Mortlock Shield carnivals.

Images go as far back as 1958 and go up to last year's carnival.

Many champions from the Eyre Peninsula, some who have gone on to play in the SANFL or even the AFL are featured among these images.

Are there any fond memories you have of the Mortlock Shield that are featured here?

NOTE: This gallery may contain images of deceased Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander persons and may cause distress to those communities.
