Director George Hepburn says he is now looking forward to the play-offs and believes his side can hold their own . . . but they will have to be at their best.

“Qualifying for the play-offs was our aim when we put the team together at the start of the season,” said Hepburn.

“Now we are there we want to do well, but to be the best you have to beat the best and whoever we get in the play-offs we know it is going to be tough.”

The play-offs will be decided by two mini-leagues of three, with teams facing each other home and away. The cut-off date for qualification is Sunday with teams being selected by the top two on Monday.
