Hot on the heels of Kerry’s team announcement, we’ve just named our starting fifteen for tomorrow night’s match in Tralee. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Kerry, 11/2/2017): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Donie Newcombe (Castlebar Mitchels), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), David Drake (Ballaghaderreen); Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Tom Parsons (Charlestown Sarsfields); Fergal Boland (Aghamore), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Alan Freeman (Aghamore), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber).
So it’s just the one change from the side that started against Monaghan a week ago. Out goes Danny Kirby – who, according to tonight’s team announcement, was suffering a foot injury when withdrawn last Saturday night – and in comes Tom Parsons.
Like the Kerry lads, our line-up for tomorrow night is a much-changed one from the one that started in last year’s corresponding fixture played at MacHale Park. Kerry field just four of their team from last year tomorrow night whereas we’ll be putting out five of the lads who started then.
Colm Boyle, Tom Parsons, Kevin McLoughlin, Jason Doherty and Evan Regan all lined out that day, while Stephen Coen – named at centre-back for tomorrow night – made an appearance off the bench.
