BREADY WOMEN GO FOR ALL-IRELAND GLORY
It’s a big day on Saturday for Bready Women as the North West double winners attempt to win the inaugural All-Ireland T20 title on home soil. It won’t be easy for the Magheramason side as they take on a very strong CSNI team from Belfast full of interprovincial players. If they come through that game, they then face Dublin opposition in the shape of Pembroke and their international contingent.
While Bready go into the competition as underdogs, influential all-rounder Jemma Rankin is hopeful they will give a good account of themselves.
“We are all excited to be playing in such a big competition against these two teams,” said Rankin. “It will build great experience for the girls and let the Belfast and Southern sides see the talent and potential we have here in Bready. The fact both games are live-streamed as well is such a buzz for us all.”
“As regards team news, we are missing Sophie Killen this weekend but we have Amy Campbell back in the side so we still have a very strong squad. All the girls are in top form and we are playing really well as a team so I have no doubts that on Saturday we will want another trophy to add to our collection this year.”
The action at Bready gets underway at 10:30am when they play CSNI, with the winners facing Pembroke in the showpiece decider at 3pm.
