  • Having secured the league title the firsts with two games remaining, on Thursday night the welcomed Rathfriland Rangers to Rosconnor, the visitors ran out three one winners. James Costello scored a hat-trick while Eoin Boyle replied for Downpatrick. Then on Saturday Larne Tech were the visitors, after providing Downpatrick with a guard of honour the visitors were intent on ruining the title celebrations and went one nil up at half time. The introduction of Andrew Telford in the second half provided Downpatrick with some injection up front and the top goal scorer didn’t take long before he brought the sides level with a fierce shot from the edge of the box

  • The under 16’s suffered defeat in their league playoff final at the hands of Lisburn Distillery, playing in terrible conditions the players found themselves losing four nil at half time having played against a gale force wind. In the second half they tried to stage a comeback and within five minutes they pulled a goal back through centre half Conor Breen’s pile driver from the edge of the box. With fifteen minutes remaining Eoin Rooney pulled another goal back but the damage had been done and Downpatrick lost 4 – 2. It’s always said that the best way to get over a defeat is to play a game quickly and there’s no better game to play than in a cup final. This Saturday the 16’s play Willowbank at 10.00am in Ballymacoss Playing Fields.
  • The under 14’s also tasted defeat in their quest for the league title, needing to win their remaining two games to win the league they won against Warrenpoint but suffered defeat against the eventual winners Oxford Sunnyside by a scoreline one nil.
