Smyth calls time in green


IRISH international Emma Smyth has decided to call time on her international career after six years and 140 caps.

Midfield Smyth made her debut against England in 2009.

"I'd like to say a big thank you to Gene Muller who gave me my first cap against England in 2009, which was such an honor and a privilege," said Smyth.

"I will never forget the great influence you had on my hockey career. Also a big thank you to Darren, Graham, Arlene and all the staff over the last few years. You are all truly fantastic individuals that work incredibly well as a team."
