Irish men come north in tribute to Ulster stalwart

By Staff Reporters

Ulster hockey fans get the chance to congratulate the Irish senior men's squad who have almost certainly, booked their places at the 2016 Olympics when they come to Mossley for a memorial game on August 1.

Craig Fulton's squad are awaiting confirmation of their tickets to the Rio showpiece but have agreed to be part of Mossley's festival of hockey as a tribute to stalwart Trevor Lorimer who passed away recently.

Mossley's U18s will take on Antrim U18s, their ladies will take on Ulster Juniors, a Select team will take on a Parkview Select and the Memorial Match between the Irish squad and a Mossley President's XI will be the last on the programme. Entry is free but all donations will go to CLIC Sargent.

Meanwhile, the Irish U18 boys moved a step closer to survival in Europe's top flight when goals from Freddie Morris, Julian Dale and Keith O'Hare gave them a 3-0 win over Scotland. They play Germany tomorrow (8.15pm).

The senior Irish women complete their pool programme in their European campaign against hosts Czech Republic in Prague today at 4.45pm, while the Irish U16 girls face England in their Six Nations tournament in Bremen, Germany (5pm), and the Irish U16 boys take on Spain (2.15pm) in their series in Breda, Netherlands.
