Coach: Mick McKinnon
Captain: Isobel Joyce
Players In: Holly Jenkinson (UCD), Zara Delany (Loreto), Nikki Evans (Hermes)
Players Out: none
Summary: A very decent squad has been improved further with Holly Jenkinson, Zara Delany and Nikki Evans all moving to Park Avenue while Sinead Dooley’s increased availability is another bonus for Mick McKinnon.
Competition for places will be further still though Emma Smyth’s potential absence is one hurdle to overcome. However, having secured a maiden Leinster league win, sights may well be on the bigger prizes in the form of either the IHL or ISC.
The side has made huge strides in recent years and the air of positivity which emanates from the ground means they could well challenge in that arena though a first round ISC trip to Victorians is certainly a stern tester of those credentials.
First three games: Sept 26 Old Alex (h); Oct 3 UCD (h); Oct 10 Victorians (a)
