Ireland's all-time record goalscorer Anna O'Flanagan is returning to Dublin for the 2019-20 season after signing for Muckross Hockey Club.

The 29-year old, who spent the past two years playing for Bloemendaal in the Netherlands, will act as both player and assistant coach for her new club next season. 

A former student at Muckross Park College, O'Flanagan has already won two Irish Women's Hockey League titles with UCD in 2014 and Hermes-Monkstown in 2016. 

She scored twice in Ireland's famous march to the World Cup final in London last year and has 180 international caps to her name.

She was recently named player of the tournament at the FIH Women's Series in Banbridge.

O'Flanagan joins the coaching staff at Muckross under head coach Simon Pearson.  

Muckross today issued a statement heralding her arrival: "The club are delighted to be welcoming Anna back to her school grounds of Muckross Park College as she joins the Muckross Magic.

"With 180 international caps to her name, Anna will be using her vast experience and world class skills to further develop this young, ambitious and talented team."
