Northern Tridents name strong sides for Sentinel Homes Premier Hockey League


Stacey Michelsen will lead a strong Northern Tridents team into battle in the inaugural Sentinel Homes Premier Hockey League. Michelsen will be joined by four teammates from the national squad in a team that features a good mix of youth and experience. 

Northland teammates Michelsen and Ella Gunson will be looking to bring their vast experience playing together to this team as they aim to build a strong core throughout the competition. 

Rising players Steph Dickins, as well as sisters Katie and Madison Doar, will look to stamp their credentials and push their case to be included in the 2021 national squads.

The side will be coached by current Vantage Black Sticks Assistant Coach Jude Menezes who will look to build a solid midfield core that will feed great ball through to a powerful strike line.

The Northern Trident Men will be led by an all-star coaching line-up in Bryce Collins (former Black Stick and Assistant Coach), Graham Shaw (current Vantage Black Sticks Women’s Head Coach) and Casey Henwood (2008 Olympian). 

The experienced coaching set up has entrusted current Vantage Black Sticks attacking midfielder George Muir with the captaincy for the 2020 season. He will call on two other national squad members, Steve Edwards and Cory Bennett, to help the young squad find their feet early in the competition.

The Tridents feature a large contingent of players who have played at recent Sultan of Johor Cup tournaments and will be familiar with the up-tempo style of hockey that Collins will be looking to play.
