Check Your Trophy Cabinet!

For those of you fortunate enough to have a trophy cabinet, would you please check for any NI trophies you are holding ie NI Champs, NI Score or NI Night. Please bring them on Saturday at Hillsborough and either give them to Ann Savage or leave in the MOO. If you have a LVO trophy, you can hold on to that a little longer!
