Scannell announces Irish Senior Women panels for Mardyke Series

  • Jun 06,2017

Ireland Senior Women’s Head Coach, Mark Scannell, has today announced two panels of players who will represent Ireland at this weekend’s Mardyke Series.

The two-game series will see Ireland welcome Iceland to the Mardyke Arena, UCC, Co. Cork on Friday, June 9th, with a 7.30pm tip off, before facing them once more in the second game on Saturday, June 10th at 5pm at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght.

Speaking ahead of the weekend, Coach Scannell stated: “We are really looking forward to this weekend and welcoming Iceland for the Mardyke Series. We know we have a very tough challenge ahead of us, Iceland are a quality side and will not be easy opposition by any means. We have been working hard since returning from Luxembourg and these games will be a great opportunity for all of the named players to show they have what it takes to represent Ireland at this level.”

Tickets are available on the door of both arenas, with a €5 admission charge for adults, while children under 16 go free.
