The Mid Ulster Supporters travelled to Coleraine on Saturday to cheer on N.Ireland Ladies in their World Cup Qualifier against Estonia.  Mid Ulster were represented on the N.Ireland squad by Simone Magill and with the added incentive of the Junior Mid Ulster girls to provide the half time entertainment.  A great days entertainment was provided by the N.Ireland girls as they bossed the game from the start and at half time the visitors will have been glad to have reached the break with the game still level.  Half time saw the Mid Ulster juniors take to the pitch and the girls gave a good account of themselves against fellow Tyrone representatives Sion Swifts.  The half time game ended 0-0 and the girls retired to the stands to continue their support of the Senior Ladies.  Simone Magill came on for N.Ireland and the girls in green picked up where they left off.  After a number of close calls for the Estonian goal, Helen McKenna of Crusaders worked a piece of magic to open the scoring.    McKenna doubled her tally and a further goal from her clubmate Julie Nelson  gave the N.Ireland girls a fully deserved 3-0 win.  This performance was a true reflection of the improvement in the game and was a great example for the young girls who played at half time.
