Helen Hamilton - I had the pleasure of coaching Bethany in cricket as a Lurgan Tiger. She was a joy to spend time with, a well-mannered, talented and very likeable child who I picked out most weeks as the one who always gave her best and did whatever was asked of her. My deepest sympathies to her whole family circle, she will be sorely missed.
