Following Mayo's footballers

Sunday stuff

Photo: (Lorraine O’Sullivan/Inpho) No match for us today – instead it was Roscommon and Galway battling it out for the FBD title, with the four-goal Rossies claiming a first pre-season crown for 16 years – so not much to report on but two things are worth a mention. The first relates to yesterday Hastings […]

A few FBD stats

This time last year, I did a post-FBD piece on who had played and who had scored in the three games and that was such fun that I’m back again twelve months on with another one, the essential details of which are – like last year – summarised in a neat little table. Voilà. At one […]

Monday match reports

Photo: That’s a cold one, isn’t it? Cold as death itself, just like our hopes for the year after that abject performance yesterday, one that showed our trajectory is now firmly spiralling ever downwards … oh yeah, sorry, it was just the FBD wasn’t it? Seriously, though, it WAS just an FBD match yesterday […]

Rossies end our FBD hopes

Photo: Mayo’s 2015 FBD campaign came to a disappointing end at Elverys MacHale Park this afternoon as Roscommon ran out deserving five-point winners over the home side on a glorious day for football. Mayo welcomed Kenneth O’Malley, Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle, Seamus O’Shea, Diarmuid O’Connor, Enda Varley and Darren Coen back to the team for […]

Team to face Roscommon named

As has already been referenced in the comments, the team and subs for our our final FBD group match, against Roscommon in just under an hour from now at MacHale Park, has been named. Details are as follows: Mayo (FBD League v Roscommon, 18/1/2015): Kenneth O’Malley (Ballinrobe); Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Lee Keegan (Westport); Colm […]

Monday match reports

Photo: It’s Monday, there was a match yesterday and so it’s time for the usual round-up of reports on the action. First up, though, my thanks to Mike Kelly for his excellent piece on the game that was posted here on the site last night. The Mayo Advertiser is the obvious place to start, […]

Winning start maintained over students

Photo: Mayo maintained their winning start to the season and placed almost both feet into the FBD final on Sunday when they overcame the students of IT Sligo in a cold and windy James Stephens Park in Ballina. Noel Connelly and Pat Holmes made a number of changes from the side which lined out […]

Good start to the year continues

Two games, two wins – you can’t really argue with that. Match report by Mike Kelly on today’s 0-15 to 0-6 win over IT Sligo to come later.

Team named for today

As Remember51 has just said in the comments, the team to play IT Sligo in the FBD League at Ballina this afternoon (throw-in 2pm) has been named. It’s pretty much all change from last Sunday and the details are as follows: Mayo (FBD League v IT Sligo, 11/1/2015): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Kevin Keane (Westport), […]

Anyone fancy doing a match report on the IT Sligo game?

  Photo: Our second FBD League match takes place this coming Sunday, when we play host to IT Sligo at James Stephens Park, Ballina. It will, by the way, be the first time since we entertained the Dubs there in the League in March 2009 that a senior inter-county match will have been played at […]
