Down Hurlers travel to Carlow - 18/04/03

Division 2A Group 1 NHL at Carlow - Sunday 20th April 2003

Carlow Down

This Sundays game is a must win game for Down hurlers who make the long trip to Dr. Cullen Park, Carlow on Sunday 20th April to play the home county in the NHL Division 2 Group 1 second series of games - starting time of game 1.30 p.m.

After their defeat in Pairc Tailteann, Navan last week-end by Meath, the Down team-manager Jimmy O'Reilly will be hoping for better luck on this occasion. The Carlow venue has been a happy hunting ground for the Down hurlers in recent times - they have won there in their last three visits.

According to the Down team-management this is probably the most important game in the league to date for them. They must win on Sunday if they are to have any chance of reaching the semi-final play-offs and gaining promotion. On the playing front their has been some good news for O'Reilly with star full-back Emmet Dorrian returning to the squad after a trip to New York and he will be available for selection, while there are high hopes that Simon Wilson and Gary Savage will have recovered from injuries and will be able to take up their usual places on the side.

With the addition of the aforementioned players and if the side show the same commitment and skill they displayed against Meath last time out they are more than capable of coming away with a badly needed win on this occasion.
