Speaking of the success, Gillespie said: “I’m proud as punch of the lads.

“I know what they’ve done to get to this point, and it’s their hard work that has paid off now.

“All the hill running in early December, the early starts, the hard graft working on their specific skills.

“I’ve seen how hard they’ve worked, and I’m absolutely delighted for them.”
