Down 1st XI vs PSNI 1st XI - 9th March 2013
Down suffered their heaviest defeat in Senior Two in recent seasons losing 10-2 away to the PSNI last weekend.
The visitors were missing virtually two thirds of their normal team with Jeremy McCready, Alasdair Duff, James Ferguson, Paul Tate, Paul Neill, Chris Taylor, Richard Owens and Jordan Wade all unavailable for one reason or another.
A number of the club's young players were drafted in for the game against a side which is looking to grab second sport in Senior Two to secure a play-off against the team which finishes second from bottom in Senior One. The winner of this tie secures a place in Senior One nest season.
