A Minute With….Siobhan Enya Boyce

The St Brigid’s Senior ladies have a huge game on Saturday (at 4pm in Ballymena) when they take on Glenavy in the Antrim Intermediate final. However, the real challenge of the week lay in choosing the answers for the ‘Minute Withs’ that have been coming in. Next up is a recruit from Lurgan, Siobhan Enya Boyce. Here’s what her teammates had to say:

She has been sitting out recently after falling over her boyfriend’s crutches, knocking herself unconscious and subsequently had severe concussion. Not the first time she’s done this either! She also gave us a fright one game when she couldn’t breathe and had no inhaler 😊
