Ireland’s National Men’s Hockey team, who touched down from Malaysia on Tuesday post their successful Champions Challenge I tour, will fly out to Spain this coming Monday to compete in a 4 nations tournament against Russia, Wales and Spain in Barcelona.

Coach Ned Fulton has selected a squad of 20 for the tour. This will be Coach Ned Fulton’s third away tournament after just a month in the role an opportunity which he is utilizing to see as many players tested on the international stage I have only been in the job for about a month now and Spain is the 3rd test series of which I can see another group of Irish players compete against top opposition. This is testament to the current depth in Irish men’s hockey at present . I look forward to seeing this new team compete and build on the platform laid in Champs Challenge 1.”

 

Both of Ireland’s national teams have a busy summer ahead as they continue to build for their respective World League 2’s – the summer schedule will be released next week.
