Last Season: 1st

Record: Won 16 Drew 2 Lost 0 Pts 50 Goals For 73 Goals Against 25

Coach: Jonathon Cole

Captain: Joe Brennan

Players In: Stephen Doran (Pembroke) Enda Tucker (Weston)

Players Out: Nasir Munir (Suttonians)

Summary: The upshot of Ireland’s involvement in the Olympic qualifier in New Zealand is that Pembroke and Glenanne’s squad management could be a key factor in the title race. Stephen Butler and Graham Shaw will definitely be missing for most of January and February as well as a possible December jaunt to Chile. The influential John Goulding will also be out until January but may be replaced around the goalmouth by Enda Tucker who has scored two in two Neville cup games. Last year, Eddie O’Malley and Gary Shaw stepped up for some key games and will need to become dominant players otherwise the quadruple winners will struggle to hold onto their silverware. Stephen Doran, though, is an excellent addition having long been one of the best keepers in Leinster and previous Club Championships Player of the Tournament.

First three games: UCD (a); Bray (h); Monkstown (a)

Prediction: 2nd
