Down U14 - BORN 2004 ONLY
The U14 squad training continued at the weekend for the panel of 34 girls. The girls are working very hard, two more sessions are planned before Christmas.
Down U13 - BORN 2005 ONLY
Another great turnout for the 2nd group of girls attending year 2005 trials on Saturday morning at Red High Downpatrick. The girls from the two trials have definitely made it tough for the coaches so far and with both set of girls coming together for the final trial this Saturday the coaches have their work cut out to select a final squad of girls to represent Down at this level. Best of luck for all girls this Saturday. Details of times for final trial to follow.
