New Life for Lockhart: Strikers Back in Action!

As it was our home for many years, felt it most fitting to place this thread here.

So, just when you think the old lady may have seen her last leg as a "premier" event hosting facility (joking), here comes some new life to save the day…Of course HS football may ALWAYS have a home there, but how about the return of some former glory days??

And, in particular, this familiar face:





"Its almost like weve come full circle. We are a member of the new NASL and currently play at legendary Lockhart Stadium where so many greats of the game have competed in the past, both with and against the Strikers. We want to honor that tradition and build upon it in the most respectful manner possible, said Miami FC President Aaron Davidson."

First home game is Saturday, April 9th…

How good are they going to be? Um, well let's talk about that later…for now, here's the linkage to check them out:

I lived just downt he street from Lockhart during the Striker years.

They had some good teams and I went o school with Keith Wellers daughter.

Striker events were fun! They always had a big fireworks display around the 4th of July and would let you go out on the filed on blankets to watch the game.

I wont miss lockhart for FAU games for sure, but it is nice to see that the Strikers are coming back home.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

It would probably take a bomb being dropped at this point to see Lockhart go down…….

Lol
