Down U15 – BORN 2003 ONLY 
Massive thanks and well done to the 33 girls that attended the u15 trials today. It was great to see so many of last year’s squad returning and even better to see both new faces and girls that didn’t make the squad last year back to give it another go. It was disappointing however that, so many clubs were not represented, and especially missed were girls from the clubs that have recently played in U14 finals. There is still time for those girls to make the squad as trials continue next Sunday same time and place. 
The girls from the following clubs are asked to arrive by 12:15 pm and session will last from 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm:
Ballymartin
Saval
Saul
Castlewellan
Rostrevor
Annalish
St John's Bosco
Dundrum
Bryansford
Warrenpoint
 
And girls from the following clubs are asked to arrive by 1:30 pm and the session will last from 1:45 pm – 3:00 pm:

Down U14 - BORN 2004 ONLY
The Down U14 championship squad for 2018 has now been selected and names /clubs are listed below. Congratulations to those girls selected. The selection of the panel was much tougher this year due to the very high quality of the players at the trials and the limited number of places available on the panel. The mentors would like to thank all the girls, parents and clubs for their tremendous efforts and cooperation since the start of the Academy at the end of August.

Down U13 - BORN 2005 ONLY
Thanks to all 42 girls that attended the first trial for the Year 2005 group. Every girl put in a massive effort and commitment with no shortage of skill on display and us as coaches were very impressed. 2nd trial for the remaining clubs will be held on Saturday 25th November at the Abbey Grammar School in Newry as per previous messages. Well done girls.
