Down name sides for League returns

Down have named their sides for this weekend’s National League fixtures.

The footballers face Leitrim at home tomorrow afternoon knowing that a win would put them one game away from a return to Division Two.

Manager Paddy Tally has made four changes to the side that eased past Offaly in their last game in March.

Steven Fegan, Donal O’Hare, Jerome Johnston and Caolon Mooney come into the side with Benny McArdle, James Guinness, Kevin McKernan and Cory Quinn dropping out.

On Sunday the hurlers will face Derry with promotion to Division 2A on the line.

Danny Toner is ruled out through injury but Daiti Sands and Donal Hughes are amongst those returning to the first 15 after linking up with the squad recently.

Down (NFL v Leitrim): R Burns; G Collins, P Murdock, R McAleenan; D Guinness, P Fegan, S Fegan; J McFlynn, C Poland; B O’Hagan, C Mooney, L Kerr; C Doherty, J Johnston, D O’Hare

Down (NHL v Derry): S Keith; T Murray, C Taggart, D Mallon; B Trainor, C Woods, L Savage; M Conlan, P Savage; R Costello, P McCrickard, D Hughes; O McManus, E Sands, D Sands
