News in brief: Genesis TY students compile history
** Genesis are running a Transition Year project for their youth section students. Part of the project is to find out more about Genesis history.
The students are looking for information on past presidents, club captains, names of players who represented Genesis at provincial and international level indoor and outdoor (in any country), interesting newspaper cuttings, hockey tours, videos, emails etc; anything that is interesting to be written into the annals of the club.
If you have some memories or information that you would like to share with them please contact Jantien.Findlater at email@example.com
** The Leinster Branch joint men’s and ladies development committee are looking to organise an indoor tournament for men in March or April, open to players from outside the current division one and three.
The cost per team is estimated at €100. It is likely that clubs will have games spread over three or four evenings. If you are interested in taking part, email Brendancarr34@gmail.com. If the interest is sufficient then we will go ahead the Branch will make the arrangements with spaces for four to six clubs this season.
** A couple of lively refixes in the offing tonight. Hermes can be the third side to top the women’s division one table in four days if they can get a result in Bray. They get underway at 8.15pm.
Meanwhile, an understrength Avoca travel out to Suttonians for a quarter-final tie in the Neville Cup, They tip off at 8pm in Sutton Park, competing for a semi-final place against Clontarf, due to be played on Sunday.
