Six Bann players in Men’s Ulster U-21 Squad

No fewer than six Banbridge players have been named in the Men’s Ulster U-21 Squad which was announced by Ulster Hockey earlier today.  Stephen Dowds, Hugh McShane, Peter Brown, Josh Moffett, Matthew Bell and Owen Magee have all made the squad for the forthcoming inter-provincials which will take place at Lisnagarvey Hockey Club from 1-3 February 2013.  

Stephen Dowds has added to his increasing reputation by being named captain of the side, and his accuracy from penalty corners could be pivotal as Ulster look to win the last interpro tournament of the season.

The local involvement doesn’t end there as the squad also includes ex-Banbridge player Michael Anderson, whilst the team will be managed by Paddy Grimes and the physio for the squad is local girl Ciara Magee.
