The 20th edition of the Denis Coulson Memorial Trophy was played on the grass in College Park on the 12th April. The Three Rock President’s XI composed of alumni ran out 5-3 winners against Dublin University President’s XI. The alumni shot out of the blocks, taking a 5-1 lead into half-time against the students who couldn’t convert their skills to the unfamiliar surface. A few wise words from some former greats at half-time however changed their fortunes as they gradually took to the surface to take the second half 2-0. With the alumni retaining the trophy yet again a few grass training sessions are in order for the students before next years rematch. Thank you to Stephen Findlater (Hook Hockey) for the photo!

DUHC’s week of woe results in an EGM which leads to a rejuvenated spirit and the club retrieving it’s mojo.
