All round to Eugene’s! Bann are Belgium-bound

EUGENE Magee’s Dragon’s side will play host to Banbridge when their European adventure gets underway in October.

The locals have been drawn to play in Antwerp from Friday October 21 to Sunday October 23 against German champions Hamburg and French champions Montrouge.

Two sides will qualify from each pool to progress to the next series of games next Easter.

The Germans will be a stiff test for Bann but on their day they can mix it with the best and they will be eyeing their clash with the French as their make or break game to see who progresses.

A large party of the Bann faithful will be making the trip to the busy port city of Antwerp with Dragons expected to be home from home for the locals as they are renowned for their hospitality and dedicated fans.

Further details on pre EHL events will follow in due course.
