Overview: After two years of rebuilding, head coach Trevor Dagg will be delighted to see a settled side this year plus some exciting new recruits. Robbie Clarke returns to the reds after two years playing with Trinity and will be a major boost to their defensive setup. Jakim Berndsen also returns from his studies in Scotland and will bolster the goalkeeping options.

The reds have also secured a new assistant coach after two successful years with Gordon Elliott. Jonny Bruton is teaming up again with coach Dagg after a very successful period when both were with YM. Bruton went on to major honours with TRR, Monkstown and Ireland. He is now keen to progress his coaching badges and take a step back from the pressures of international hockey.

Ross Murray is taking over first team captain from Andrew Sutton. They will be looking to defend the Leinster league and also make a major push for YHL promotion having missed on the finals last year.
