Down cap off season with shield

8 May 2024

DOWN Netball Club seniors have enjoyed an outstanding season which recently culminated with the Northern Ireland Mona Baird Shield final against Strabane Athletic in Ards Blair Leisure Centre. 

The Down team were excited and nervous and as what befits a final, it was a close match. Heading into the final quarter, Strabane were two goals ahead, but Down pulled out all the stops with an epic final quarter to win the coveted Shield on a 41-34 scoreline. 

Down Netball Club will celebrate their U-19, senior and social achievements at a gala dinner at The Mill at Ballydugan, on Friday, May 17.

Congratulations to all the senior players and coaches and thank you to all the wonderful support at the match.

Registration for the new season, commencing in September, will be open to existing members in June and any new members interested in joining should keep an eye on Down Netball Club’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for registration details.
