The tail-end of the last day of Christmas it may still be but, after the long closed season at inter-county level, the on-field action has already resumed with a vengeance. This coming weekend sees another round of games for both the senior and U21 teams and match details for both were confirmed by the County Board earlier on this evening.
The seniors are in action against IT Sligo on Sunday at James Stephens Park, Ballina, where throw-in is scheduled for 2pm. The students took a bit of a battering from Roscommon in the opening round last weekend and so they’ll no doubt be looking to make amends this coming Sunday, though our lads will equally be keen to preserve the new management’s 100% winning record for a while longer.
The U21s, meanwhile, are down to face Sligo on Saturday. This match was supposed to be played in Ballina as well but it has now been switched to nearby Knockmore. Throw-in on Saturday is 12pm.
There’s no word on teams or anything like that for these matches but, hey, it is only January football after all.
In separate news, I know Christmas is ending but I think I may have to get on to the portly lad in the red suit to get me one of those Mayo GAA cycling jerseys that Elverys have just released. Full info on this sensational sartorial development is here and that’s the jersey in question in the photo above. Nice, huh?
