Leinster men seek team managers: News in brief

* A couple of vacancies for team managers for the Leinster senior and U-21 sides ahead of the upcoming interprovincial tournaments to be held in Grange Road on March 26 to 28.

If you are interested in taking on either of these roles, please contact the Branch secretary Ronan Pelow on ronanpelow@leinsterhockey.org.

* The draw for the Leinster Senior Jacqui Potter semi-finals was confirmed this morning with Hermes set to play Pembroke and Old Alex facing off against Corinthian. The fixtures are currently set to be played on February 21.

* According to Wednesday’s Examiner, Irish captain Eimear Cregan (left) is set to move to Catholic Institute from Cork Harlequins. She spent four years at the Cork club, winning a string of league titles. She will not be eligible, though, for the Limerick club’s IHT fixture this weekend in Knock but could be in their line-up as Institute are in a strong position to end Harlequins’ 14-year reign as Munster champions.
