Trinity to introduce inaugural Wheeler Plate

Trinity Hockey will host the inaugural Wheeler Plate match between the Ladies alumni President’s XI and current students XI on April 21 at 4.30pm in College Park.

The Wheeler Plate will take place annually, and is named in honour of Doris Findlater (née de Courcey-Wheeler) who has kindly donated a Plate to be awarded to the winning team. Now 107, she played with the University in the 1920s and represented Ireland on a tour to the US in February 1928.
