Doherty adds to Belgian brigade

Brian Doherty has joined Ireland’s Belgian brigade, confirming last night that he will link up with Antwerp-based Braxgata.

The 20 year-old drag-flick expert – with three goals from five international appearances to date – joins the side who finished 10th in last season’s BMW Hockey League.

For this season, though, the club have invested in the talents of former Rotterdam talisman, Phil Burrows from New Zealand, along with Dutchman Marcel Koeton who makes the short hop across the border from Tilburg.

Braxgata begin their season on September 12 against Pingouin while September 26 is a date for Doherty to look forward to, meeting Dragons and their quartet of Irishmen.
