LCU Preview (6) Dublin University

11 April 2016


Captain: Will von Behr (English all rounder who's played for Irish Universities for last two years)
Overseas: Matt Petrie (Highly rated Australian who played several seasons with Merrion)
Coach: Isobel Joyce (becoming first female coach of a senior club)
Players out: Dhruv Kapoor, Wian Voerwood, Sam Attwood, Padraic Flanagan
Players in: Lorcan Tucker, Isobel Joyce, Jack Kerrison, Sim Singh, Ramesh Neppalli

"Matt Petrie and Isobel Joyce bring much needed experience to the squad, something we lacked last year," said club captain Will von Behr. 

"Cricket Leinster have been kind in their scheduling, allowing us to avoid exam clashes, and I feel we can make a good account of ourselves in the newly altered second division.

"It is also great to have some young talent in the side, particularly Lorcan Tucker, who achieved a lot of personal success in the recent U19 World Cup.

"Unfortunately we are without Padraic Flanagan, who opted to play for YMCA, but with all our new additions I have no doubts we will be able to fill the gap.

"Winter nets have been a high standard and we are all gearing up for a big clash at Malahide on the 23rd April."
