Time Out - March 30: Sporting greats, Dates and a Quick Quiz Blitz to kick-start your day
The Irish News - March 30 2010:
Down boss James McCartan is keeping the door ajar for stalwarts Dan Gordon and Liam Doyle to return to the fold – but remains in limbo over their participation.
Gordon is taking an indefinite break from football, while the injury-plagued Doyle suffered a minor setback in his recovery from knee tendinitis.
It is understood Loughinisland midfielder Gordon travelled to Mullingar on Sunday to watch the Mournemen hammer Westmeath by 13 points and clinch promotion from Division Two.
“I was aware Dan was at the game, which I took as a positive vibe,” said McCartan.
“I'm not trying to evade the issue, but I genuinely don't have any update. The fact that he was at the game, I'm hoping is not a bad thing.
“I haven't spoken to him, but somewhere along the lines something may happen, but it hasn't happened up to now.”
In Gordon's absence, Kalum King and Ambrose Rogers have formed a formidable midfield partnership that has been key to Down's unbeaten run in Division Two of the National Football League.
