Local ladies take on Trophy holders in Cork thumbnail

BALLYMENA Ladies First X  hockey side  are off to Cork this weekend - to compete in the Irish Trophy quarter-final!
The Braid side take on Trophy holders Brandon - a daunting task with a high noon starting time.
 Captain Clare Gillespie told Guardian Sport that excitement is mounting for the town team - and said her side will give its all in a bid to book a place in the semis.
In the previous round Ballymena scored an impressive 4-0 win over Premier League side Portadown!
But Clare, now in her fifth year as Captain, was not reading too much into the result.
"We will not be underestimating the task ahead and will prepare accordingly," she said.
