Down 1st XI vs Ballymena 1st XI - 30th November 2013
Down travelled to Ballymena missing a number of regulars and while the locals put up a brave fight they lost again, remaining firmly rooted to the bottom of Senior Two.
Skipper Jeremy McCready was one of a number of notable absentees, with the others including Gavin Ringland, Alasdair Duff and Mark Elliott, with second eleven players Ryan Swail and Liam Kearney being drafted into the senior squad.
Philip Brown took over in goal and produced a number of great stops. He was also unlucky with a number of the goals which he did concede.
Down 2nd XI vs Harlequins 4th XI - 9th November 2013
A masterclass in finishing and a brilliant goalkeeping performance ensured Down seconds picked up yet another win last weekend.
Lewis McIntosh, who just can’t stop scoring at the moment, blasted his second hat-trick in three weeks.
Instonians fifths felt the wrath of the young striker's lethal shooting power at the end of October and it was a beleaguered South Antrim side which felt his full force last Saturday.
