The 2017/18 season gets underway for both Donaghadee Ladies Hockey Club teams this Saturday with an away fixture to neighbours Bangor for the 1XI and an opening home game for the 2XI against Malone.
DLHC 1XI maintain their Senior 3 status from last year thanks to a mid-table finish, with new faces from Castle Derg and Cooke joining this league in what will no doubt prove to be as close as it was last season. Donaghadee will be hoping for a strong start in the derby to gain early momentum in the table.
The 2XI begin life in Junior 8 with an opening fixture against Malone and with a strong showing by the team’s youngsters against Bangor last week in an entertaining pre-season friendly, captain Janice McVeigh is looking forward to guiding her team forward this year. Pass back is 1pm at Bangor Grammar School and the club is delighted to welcome Ards Fireplaces as the first home match ball sponsor this season.
