Coleraine Bid For Crowley Cup Hat Trick

18 March 2015

The University of Ulster Coleraine will be bidding for a hat trick of wins when the Irish Universities Crowley Cup gets under way on Friday morning at the DCU Sports Grounds St Clare’s, Ballymun Rd.

But their task may prove a little more difficult this time as the Northern side will have to do without players who have competed in the recent Collingwood Cup competition in Galway.
On the past two occasions when Coleraine were successful in claiming the Crowley Cup they had not taken part in that years' Collingwood Cup which allowed them to use what would be deemed as a first team squad in the lesser cup competition.
The Crowley Cup is strictly confined to players who have not played in that years Collingwood Cup.
UCC have always been great supporters of the Crowley Cup and are represented by two sides which is ideal for the organisers as it brings the total entry to a neat eight teams.
UCD make a welcome return after an absence of some years and having won the Crowley Cup at DCU on a previous occasion they will be anxious to pick up some silverware at Glasnevin venue once again.
