McQuillan in Champions League action

Amanda McQuillan

Navan woman and top goalkeeper Amanda McQuillan helped Shelbourne to a positive start in the UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round yesterday.

Shelbourne held on to secure a point in Group 4 against strong Polish opponents Medyk Konin in Belfast.

Shelbourne will face Finnish side PK-35 Vantaa on Friday and Northern Irish Champions Linfield Ladies on Monday to complete the group games.

Yesterday Shelbourne started with a strong line-up in a game played in Seaview in Belfast as they looked to make the best possible start to a round of qualifying that consists of three games in a week.

Mark Leavy's team had Seana Cooke sent off and saw Kystyna Sikora blast a penalty kick over the crossbar late on, but they had done enough by that stage to earn their point. 

This result could stand to them as they still have to play PK-35 Vantaa of Finland and tournament hosts Linfield.
