James Glover, Head Coach
"It’s great for our preparations to be able to play 2 games against such a quality team. The Pelicans and Rebels have dominated inline hockey in Ireland for the past few years, so taking the best players from each team and combining them should provide us with a real challenge. It will be great for the players and myself to test out the things we have been working on in practice. The larger rink, smaller nets and different style of play are all things we need to get familiar with and we need to adapt fast. Win, loose or draw it’s important that we get some games under our belts and I would like to thank the Pelicans / Rebels players for stepping up."
