Corinthian’s Carol Magowan Pic: Adrian Boehm

Players in: tbc
Players out: Niamh Sweeney (Trinity), Jennifer Long (Trinity), Sara Quill (Trinity)

The Lowdown: A trio of departures to Trinity along with Cathy Brock and Sarah Coleman taking a year out leaves Corinthian with some key positions to fill in their side but they do have big boosts in the form of Jenny Heggie and Lyndsey Watson are back fit after lengthy spells out.

After a couple of seasons under Colm Blennerhassett, former Avoca and Pembroke man Stephen Stewart takes up the head coach role while Three Rock man Ross Varian is on board as assistant and second team coach.

Their brief is to try and bring on a promising group of Under-16 sides who have reached back-to-back Junior Jacqui Potter Cup finals. Ailbhe Marsh, Hannah McKay and Ailish Long are three talents who can come to the fore.

First three games: v Old Alex (a); v Loreto (h); North Kildare (a)
