We named our team earlier on this evening to play Sligo in the FBD League tomorrow afternoon. This game is being played in Enniscrone where throw-in is 2pm. Here’s the team we’ve named for our final pre-season outing of the year:
Mayo (FBD League v Sligo, 21/1/2018): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Michael Hall (Breaffy), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Ciaran Treacy (Ballina Stephenites).
So it’s a first start this year for Brendan Harrison, Aidan O’Shea and Evan Regan, as our preparations continue ahead of next weekend’s opening League fixture away to Monaghan. No sign of Andy yet – he’ll be bulling, then, to get going in Clones.
As others have noted, the team for tomorrow contains no fewer that four players from Ballina Stephenites. Well, the match is being played just out the road from the town.
Best of luck to all in tomorrow’s fixture.
