History

In 1967, the Brantford Majors were a member of the Niagara Junior "B" League. In 1968, a second Brantford team, by the name of the Foresters, joined the renegade Western Junior "B" League. The Foresters absorbed by the Majors in 1970 when the Majors joined the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League. The Majors folded in 1972. The Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League was a Tier II Junior A ice hockey that lasted from the late 1960s until 1976 in Southern Ontario, Canada. ...


In 1973, the Diamond Kings entered the Southwestern Junior "B" League. In 1974, an additional Junior team was created in Brantford at the "C" level. When the Kings folded, the Penguins jumped up to Junior "B" to take their place. The Brantford Junior "B" franchise spent most of their early days in the Golden Horseshoe Junior B Hockey League. The Penguins did originate in the Central Junior C Hockey League before jumping to the Southwestern Ontario Junior "B" before taking their place, as well, in the GHJHL. Golden Horseshoe Junior B The Golden Horseshoe Junior B Hockey League is a Junior B ice hockey league in Ontario, Canada, sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Association. ... Central Junior C The Central Junior C Hockey League is a Junior C ice hockey league in Ontario, Canada, sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Association. ...


Since 1987 the Brantford Golden Eagles in one way or another have stayed the course with the Midwestern "B". Despite various name changes and a couple minor moves, the Golden Eagles have been a charter member of the league for almost 20 years.
