Looking for something to do with the kids this weekend? Want to take them to a sporting event but not spend a fortune?
Residents of Boston's western suburbs will be happy to know the Marlboro Shamrocks -- a semipro football team with a rich tradition -- are returning to the field after a one-year hiatus. The team has a mix of new and old players, including former Algonquin Regional and Bentley College stars Marc Eddy and Dallas Mall.
The Shamrocks' season opener is Friday night, July 7 against Eastern Football League foe Charlestown. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. at Kelleher Field. Read more about the team in today's Globe West.
Ticket prices are $7 for adults, $5 for seniors/students, and free for kids 10-and-under.
