DONEGAL LADIES TRAVEL TO NEWRY FOR LEAGUE OPENER AGAINST DOWN

first_imgDONEGAL Ladies will finally open their Tesco National League Division 2 campaign in Newry this Sunday when they travel to take on Down.There was disappointment in the Donegal camp last weekend when ice and snow forced the postponement of the clash with Armagh in Glenfinn.But with calm and clear conditions forecast for Sunday, the clash with Down looks certain to go ahead at the excellent Abbey Grammar School pitches. Manager Davy McLaughlin and his squad have been working hard behind the scenes through the winter ready for this campaign.He and his coaching team have trawled through every club from Senior to Junior for players for this year’s panel.Aoife McDonnell and Niamh Hegarty, who have both returned from Australia, are named in the starting 15 and another emigrant – Yvonne McMonagle – will be back in Donegal later in the Spring.Sunday’s game throws in at 2pm and as always the Ladies are hoping for a good travelling support. Down lost heavily to Westmeath last time out.Donegal manager Davy McLaughlin told us: “The girls have worked very hard for the past few months; the sort of work no-one sees with regular gym sessions and outdoor sessions.“We are looking forward to the game with Down after the postponement of the Armagh game. Down will be looking to bounce back after the Westmeath match so we have to be wary. But we are ready and raring to go.”Elsewhere the Donegal U14 Girls travel to Sligo for a challenge game at St Mary’s GAA club in Sligo Town. Throw-in there is at noon tomorrow (Saturday).Laura Gallagher; Rose Boyle, Emer Gallagher, Nicole McLaughlin; Ciara Hegarty, Gemma Glackin, Deirdre Foley; Katie Herron (c), Aoife McDonnell; Karen Guthrie, Niamh Hegarty, Eilish Ward; Niamh McLaughlin, Amber Barrett, Roisin Curran.
