The Downs Ladies Football
Under 16
The under 16 team were away to Rochfordbridge on Tuesday last, in a closely contested game with little separating the sides for most the game, two goals in the final minutes for Rochfordbridge gave them the two points. This was a much improved performance by The Downs if we show similar improvement and with girls returning from injury the results will surely come. Team: Grainne Raleigh, Ursula Carley, Amy Dagg, Serena Wynne, Sinead Gallagher, Katie Heffernan, Amber Gilgan, Laura Wynne, Rebecca Kelly, Niamh Staunton, Niamh Rowan, Keelin Rowan, Aoife Kearney, Emma Murtagh, Megan Keenaghan, Chloe Gaffney, Katie Gallagher
County Football
Well done to Beth McGuire, Ellen Tate, Laura Wynne and Leanne Duncan who were part of the Westmeath minor team who won the Leinster C championship on Sunday, with Beth getting  woman of the match. 
Underage Coaching
Underage training is on  Friday evenings 6.30 to 7.30 new players always welcome.
