Old Alex

Last Season: 5th

Coach: Ivan Ovington/Miles Warren (1st season)

Players In: Roisin Flinn (UCD), Danielle Costigan (Trinity), Pamela Smithwick (UCD), Fyona Flinn (UCD)
Players Out: Liane Ryan (England), Suzanne O’Connor (Cork C of I), Jan Ovington, Anya Bowers (both retired)

Summary: A reasonable of store will be placed in youth as Alex face up to life without the experienced quartet of Liane Ryan, Sue O’Connor, Jan Ovington and Anya Bowers.

To that end, Leah Lenehan, Emily Beatty, Nicola Gray and Vera Taaffe have all been training with the first team and involved in preseason challenge matches.

Roisin Flinn is the biggest name signing for their maiden IHL season and maintaining their place at that level would constitute a good domestic season.

First three games: Sept 26 Railway (a); Oct 3 Glenanne (a); Oct 17 Old Loreto (a) (IHL)
