Mens hockey step up a gear

June 14, 2011

Coach Paul Revington has selected two squads after getting to see a large number of athletes in action last weekend in a triple header against Wales. The two squads will have matches in the Cardiff Celtic Cup and a Dublin Four nation event.

Revington said “Both events take place very close to one another and while school and university exams have also dictated how we select through this period this challenge allows the Squad another opportunity to test our strength in depth and also expose several younger players to a higher level of international competition. The Squad are all excited to be back together again and especially facing the prospect of the quality international action at both events.”

Revington who has gone with a more experienced squad for the UCD 4 Nations Cup is also affording the opportunity for three players to secure their first caps, Stephen West, Kyle Good and Ian Sloan.

The events will see Ireland play against Scotland, France and Wales in the Celtic Cup while the UCD 4 Nations brings in teams from further afield such as Pakistan and China.
