Coach: Guy Garrett (1st season)
Players In: Lauren Coffey (Our Lady’s), Rachel Maunsell (Loreto Beaufort)
Players Out: Nicci Daly (Loreto), Valerie Sexton (UCD), Elaine O’Riordan (UCD)
Summary: The hardest-working team in division one last year, Glenanne were a surprise package of sorts and were in with an outside chance of an IHL place at times last season.
With Nicci Daly moving on, a repeat performance will be tougher but Guy Garrett has a good track record and has an enlarged panel to work with. Avril Brennan, Kate O’Connor and Marie Goulding continue to progress; Mary Waldron and Louise Corrigan have fewer football commitments this year and Paula Fitzpatrick is available after injury.
Lauren Coffey and Rachel Maunsell come into the squad too. Their short trip to Corinthian on Saturday is key, as is their second scheduled league fixture on October 17 against Bray.
First three games: Sept 26 Corinthian (a); Oct 3 Ulster Elks (ISC); Oct 17 Bray (a)
