Quintet back again for Scott’s Leinster U-16s

Sarah Scott can draw on five of last year’s side for experience following the announcement of the Leinster U-16 girls team to play in the interprovincial series in Stormont on October 22 and 23.

Alexandra College’s Irish U-16 duo Amber Gleeson and sharp-shooter Anna Roopnarinesingh are both back for another spell with the side as they look to win back the title for the first time since 2005.

Holy Child’s Jenna Volpert, Wesley’s Sarah Quill and Ailbhe Marsh, from Mount Anville, are the other trio back for another run for the young blues.

The side includes a large representation from St Gerards with three players involved including 13 year-old Elena Tice who became the second youngest ever cricket international in the world in August when she lined for Ireland against the Netherlands.

Miah Phelan is the sole non-South Dublin player included in the panel, the Newbridge club member representing her school Cross and Passion, Kilcullen.
