Club biography

Banbridge were the big story from ROUND1 last year as they beat Saint Germain before drawing 3-3 with Royal Leopold to top their group and advance to the KO16 for the first time. There, they were undone in a shoot-out by Racing Club de France, missing out on becoming the first Irish club to reach the KO8.

Since then, defenders Matthew Bell (Crefelder) and Kyle Marshall (Beeston) have moved on as has Jake Rowe who has taken up a golf scholarship in USA. Irish underage internationals Alex Tinney and Zach McClelland have joined the club on the flip side.

In addition to their EHL run, they also won the Irish Senior Cup and the EYHL regular league season but missed out on the Champions Trophy title, falling in a shoot-out to Monkstown who subsequently were lost to Three Rock Rovers in the final.

They face Belgian opposition once again in Racing Club de Bruxelles along with Poland's WKS Grunwald Poznan in ROUND1 in Barcelona.
