Matt McLean: A True Keeper of the Game
Matthew McLean an excellent Lacrosse and Hockey player, passed on September 23rd 2019, after a long battle from Colon Cancer. Matt was 45 years old.
While others are posting of his family, and offering condolences, which you may read, I will add this bit about his Beaches Lacrosse Days.
Matthew was in that argument of ‘who was the best lacrosse player to don a Beaches jersey’. He was one of the triplet brothers — they all played and caused havoc on the Ontario minor lacrosse scene in the 1980’s, and Matt followed that by dominating in Junior ‘A’ in the early 90’s. He also has a younger brother – Ashton, who had an outstanding lacrosse career.
Matt Stood Out for the Beach
A complete player in all areas of the game, a gifted goal scorer, an excellent team player, and one of the best captains the Beaches has ever produced — he’s also in that argument of ‘the Beaches all-time best captain’. He was well-respected and admired not only by his teammates, but also by his opponents and by the fans, for his competitive play and his gifted communicating skill with players, coaches and the referees.
Matthew also played Senior and NLL.
