Last season: 6th EYHL, Irish Senior Cup semi-final, Mills Cup semi-final
Coach: Niall Denham (second season)
Players in: Mitch Darling (Rotterdam), Kevin Mullins (Clontarf), Shane Madeley (UCD)
Players out: Fred Morris (Almere, Netheralds), Luke Chadwick (Voordaan, Netherlands)
Otherwise, it is a young squad with an extra year of experience under their belt and a top four finish will be the target after last season’s near miss. Young players like Ben Walker, Peter Lynch, Alex Flynn, Alex O’Regan and Rob McCollum could make their claims for increased pitch time.
Fred Morris has moved to the Netherlands where he made his debut in the Hoofdklasse with Almere in the last two weeks. They will also hope Luke Madeley, Jamie Carr and Daragh Walsh hit the ground running following a stint in Malaysia where they played professionally for the summer, returning to Ireland this week.
Luke Chadwick in midfield is a big loss as he also moved to Holland where he will play with Voordaan with another Three Rock old boy Phelie Maguire.
