THE MARMORA HOCKEY HALL OF FAME
Trent Valley League The Marmora Millionaires
About 1895 and for the following fifty years, Marmora
had a reputation as one of the most.enthusiastic
members of the Trent Valley Hockey League (TVHL) in Central Ontario. Before covered arenas made their appearance in the area, crowds would stand around the ice surface, no matter the weather, and nothing seemed to dampen their enthusiasm. The only way to attend
games away from home was horse drawn vehicle , cutters or sleighs. Sometimes nearly as many local hockey supporters travelled to Stirling, Madoc or Campbellford as those that would attend the game from the host village.
Marmora was one of the last villages left in the TVL
circuit that did not have a covered rink. As a result of
the opposing TVL teams objecting to playing on open
rinks, Marmora adopted Stirling, and later Madoc, as
their home ice for games against other teams.

With a trophy of two cups to compete for, there should be very exciting contest in the League this season. ( Click here for more on Josiah Pearce .

March 2, 1911 On Friday evening last, the second of the home and home game between Marmora and Stirling to decide the championship of the Trent Valley League was played on the local rink. The attendance probably makes a new record for the League as the receipts were $120.00. The following is the local line-up: Inkster, goal; Gladney, point; Deforge, centre point; Geen, rover; Jones, centre; McWilliams, left wing and Naylor, right wing
Jan 28, 1915 To add interest to the contest for the championship of the Trent Valley Hockey League, Mr. Robert Cooke, M.L.A. has donated a beautiful silver cup which is mounted on an ebony base to be held by the winning team from year to year.
Feb. 10, 1938 Gus Leonard, fast skating forward for Marmora High School team is also playing a star game for Stirling in the Trent Valley League. On Monday he was given his first penalty in four years of hockey. He is the youngest player on the Stirling team and perhaps the youngest player in the League, and hockey fans and reporters predict a bright future for him. A fast and smooth skater, with a poke c heck that breaks up many an opponent's rush, and a hard accurate shot, he should develop into a star on any team.
Jan 5, 1939 The newly organized Madoc-Marmora Mic-Macs opened the season in the Trent Valley League be defeating Tweed 10-3. The line-up was: Goal, Hollingsworth; Defence, C. O'Neill and N, O'Neil; Centre, Keller; Wings, Akey and Alexander; Subs, Leonard, Loveless, Burridge, Hailstone, Pigden and Martin
