Donegal started the defence of the North West U21 Cup with defeat this afternoon at the hands of Sligo.
Declan Bonner’s experiment side went down 2-13 to 2-7 at the O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny with Lorcan Connor and Daniel Clarke scoring the Donegal goals.

There was a number of players missing from today’s side while Stephen McBrearty looks set to miss a few weeks having hobbled off with a hamstring injury.
