Keith and Enda both fail fitness tests

It’s been officially announced that Keith Higgins and Enda Varley both failed fitness tests this morning and so neither will play any part in tomorrow’s NFL final (see brief report in Midwest – here).

The news that neither Keith nor Enda will be available tomorrow is no real surprise and, with our opening championship match against Sligo now just six weeks away, it’s obviously more important that both lads are back to full fitness by then. ┬áThe last thing we’d want is to rush them back and possibly risk losing them for the entire summer.

  1. As you said, no surprise with this announcement. However, Sligo scored a few nice points tonight and with the win behind them, they will be “ready” for Mayo in weeks.

    Time to show the Nation that football is on the rise in Mayo…..

    CHAMPAGANE AND CUCUMBERS FOR THE MAYO SLASHERS
    PIGS TROTTERS FOR THE CORK *&”**!!!!

  2. hi
    hope you’re not a bit hasty there Sam. I wouldn’t be surprised to see us win tomorrow but i won’t be too disappointed either if we lose. I doubt anyone forsaw this finale to the League back in January.
    But i can’t underestimate the Cork team. I think they threw away last years final and I believe they will be back tomoroow to prove a point.
    But the League was never it for me this year – persoanally I think it’s time to show some progress in the championship and I think you’re right WJ wr.t Enda and Keith. Sligos date is far more important.

    PS though Sam: I like your rhyme.
