Zoe Wilson has quit a hockey scholarship in the United States after helping Syracuse University lift the national colleges title for the first time before Christmas.

The 18-year-old Irish international will play out the rest of the season with Randalstown as they prepare for the play-off series which will determine whether or not they secure a place in next year's Irish Hockey League.

However if they fail to do so, then it's likely that Wilson will become a target for some of the top teams in the country, if she decides to stay in Northern Ireland.

"Attending Syracuse University on a hockey scholarship was an amazing opportunity and an experience I would recommend to anyone." she said.

"However for a combination of reasons that included both hockey and my future career path I have made a decision to return home."
