Down kings Kilcoo will keep an eye on challengers for the throne

By Staff Reporter

Kilcoo, who have won the Down Senior Football title on five occasions since 2009, have already laid down a marker that they have no intention of relinquishing their prize.

Having already disposed of Saval in their opening game by a whopping 5-16 to 0-6, the champions will now take stock of this weekend's games as they focus on remaining kings of the Mourne County.

Today, Loughinisland and Castlewellan will cross swords at Downpatrick (3.30pm) where long-serving Dan Gordon will again be a central figure in the Island line-up while Fintan McGreevy, Kevin Duffin and the emerging David Gilmore will underpin Castlewellan.

Longstone, currently peddling their wares in Division One, face Downpatrick at Castlewellan tomorrow (3.30pm) and Bryansford will take on Glenn.

Monday night's face-off between Burren and Ballymartin at St Patrick's Park, though, could be one-sided. Burren are among the favourites to land the title and that's not surprising as Kevin McKernan, Donal O'Hare and Declan Rooney are in fine form.
