Change is coming to Gloucester High football as the Lions will play home games under the lights on Friday nights for the first time since the school on the corner of Market Street and Route 130 opened in 1962.
Night football was a regular event in Gloucester in the 1940s and 1950s at the old Charles Street Stadium.
But the Lions have been a Saturday morning team since the new high school was opened at the corner of Market Street and Route 130 in 1962.
Goodbye, Burlco/Olympic American.
Goodbye, Tri-County Royal.
Hello, West Jersey Football League.
This season marks the end of an era in South Jersey football. Next season, teams from the Burlco/Olympic, Tri-County, and Mercer County-based Colonial Valley will join together to form the West Jersey Football League.
The only constant Saturday afternoon at the Wesley Bishop turf field in Moorestown was the wind - persistent, freezing, and blowing in the same direction, toward the same net, for the entire game.
