Leitrim versus Down has been cancelled

Leitrim have conceded today’s Allianz Football League game against Down with insufficient numbers able to travel.

Leitrim GAA confirmed the news in a statement saying that “a number of players are awaiting test results and unavailable to travel” adding that other factors also prevented further players from being available.”

The fixture is thus conceded and will not now take place with Leitrim forfeiting two points which comes as a major blow to their chances of remaining in Division three.

Attention now turns to the final game against Tipperary and Terry Hyland’s side remain hopeful of completing the campaign.

The game against the Premier County is scheduled for next weekend.
