Over 45's on the double!
Ireland Ladies over-45’s completed a remarkable double victory over their English counterparts at the weekend, with 1-0 and 2-1 results at Park Avenue. Pembroke players Sinéad Guilfoyle, Alison Pigot (captaining), Edwina Mulcahy and Jude Hayward were to the fore during both games, indeed Alison brought her all time tally against the English to an impressive 3, while Sinéad demonstrated her enduring class between the posts with two great performances, typified by a penalty stoke save on Saturday.
Sarah Williams was able to count on her years of man management experience as squad manager – with a group of demanding international athletes to look after, not an easy job by any stretch of the imagination! Naturally we’ll be expecting great things from our internationals this coming season, expect Alison to be wearing her irish gear down to training until at least November, while recruitment for next season’s Masters should begin in earnest in the next few weeks. Well done ladies, you worked hard for it over the summer – great achievement.
