The team to play Kerry in tomorrow’s All-Ireland JFC final at Croke Park – which is the curtain-raiser at HQ tomorrow, throwing in at 2pm – was announced earlier on. There are two changes from the side that lined out in the semi-final win over Wexford with Michael Togher and Conor Keane replacing Gary Keane and Ronan Mallee respectively. The team is once again captained by Andrew Farrell and the starting fifteen and subs are as follows:
Mayo (All-Ireland JFC final v Kerry, 6/8/2016): Mattie Flanagan (Balla); Eddie Doran (Achill), Niall Freeman (Aghamore), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Barry Duffy (Balla), James Kelly (Belmullet), Jason Forkan (Kiltimagh); Michael Togher (Belmullet), Peter Collins (Islandeady); Brian Reape (Moy Davitts), Micheál Forde (Ballycastle), Kevin Gibbons (Louisburgh); Darren Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Andrew Farrell (Killala, captain), Conor Keane (Hollymount/Carramore). Subs: Keith Hennelly (The Neale), Sean Gaughan (Belmullet), Ronan Mallee (Kiltimagh), Gary Keane (Westport), Robert Holian (The Neale), Ronan Doherty (Ardnaree Sarsfields), Barry Leonard (Lahardane), Sharoize Akram (Ballaghaderreen), Padraig Feerick (Hollymount/Carramore).
Kerry announced their team and subs for tomorrow’s final the other day. Full details are here.
Obviously most focus tomorrow will be on the seniors but it’s not every day that a Mayo team of any kind gets to contest an All-Ireland final at Croke Park so hopefully plenty of support will be there for the Juniors when their decider gets underway at 2pm. The very best of luck to them as they shoot for the stars at HQ tomorrow.
