Seven Ulster players have been included in the Ireland U21 training panel ahead of the European Championship in Valencia in August. Rachel Burns, Jessica McMaster, Erin Getty, Emma Kernohan, Taite Doherty, Ruth Maguire and Hannah Irwin have all made the first stage of selection after impressing at the inter-pros in Dublin at the weekend.

Meanwhile, there were wins for top-flight newcomers Banbridge, Ballymoney and Lurgan in the Ulster Shield.

Bann beat North Down 2-1, Money were 3-0 winners in Raphoe while  Lurgan defeated Lisnagarvey 4-0. Goals from Sarah McClure, from a penalty corner, and Joanne Wilson put Lurgan, last year’s beaten semi-finalists, 2-0 up at the break and Emily McStea and Kerrie Burns doubled the tally after the restart.

Banbridge made a good start to their first campaign but Bann’s fellow top-flight newcomers Raphoe were less fortunate as Ballymoney came home from Donegal with a comfortable win, thanks to goals from Catherine Gawn, Ruth Sutherland Nikki Parke.

In the Senior Cup former winners Ballymena trounced Larne 7-1, Mossley defeated Knock 6-1 while Armagh beat Cookstown 1-0.
