Down U14 Ladies County Team / U13 Ladies County Development Team
DOWN U13s AND U14s ENJOY THE ULSTER BLITZ 2017
Down had 4 teams taking part in the Ulster Blitz held in Galbally, County Tyrone on Saturday 11th March. Over 60 girls had a great day competing against County Teams from Armagh, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Derry and Antrim. One of the U13 teams reached the final in their competition but lost out in the end to a very strong and competitive Antrim team. An U14 team also reached their final but were beaten in the end by Donegal. The Ulster Championship and leagues now commence in the next few weeks with the U13s first up away to Derry followed by the U14s who host Fermanagh on Saturday 8th April in Newry. The girls certainly added a splash of colour on the day with all 64 girls kitted out in their new County 1/2 zips. Many thanks to all the parents who made the long trip to support all 4 teams.
