Thornton relishing Odyssey college tournament

Belfast Giants coach Steve Thornton is looking forward to November's four-team tournament at the Odyssey Arena, which will see American universities compete for the Belpot Trophy.

UMass Lowell, Northeastern University, Brown University and Colgate University will take part in the first competitive games outside the US held by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

The mayors of Belfast and Boston were also among those to welcome the new tournament.
