U20 and Minor Championship draws confirmed

It’s definitely time to turn the focus back onto on-field matters. What better way to do so than with some Championship draw news? The other evening the draws were made for next year’s 2020 provincial Championships at both U20 and Minor levels. Full details of the draws are here. The Minor one can be dealt with swiftly, as it’s being […]

Ladies and Minors in action this Saturday

This coming weekend, at last, allows everyone to draw breath after five hectic weekends of Championship action. But that’s just the Senior team. Two other Mayo teams are in action this Saturday and, for both of them, these are crunch games. The ladies have an All-Ireland Championship round-robin clash with Donegal – aside from anything else, this is a timely […]

Kerry preview – Mayo News football podcast 2019 E30

Saturday evening’s win over Galway not only ended a long losing run against the Tribesmen it also guaranteed Mayo three further games in this year’s championship. The first of these ‘Super 8s’ matches takes place on Sunday at Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney, with James Horan taking his team down to Kerry’s home patch for a meeting that is a repeat […]

U20s outgunned by Galway

Mike Solan’s Mayo U20s came to Tuam Stadium this evening seeking to land the county’s second Connacht title in a row at this level. While Galway went into tonight’s provincial decider as favourites, there were high hopes that our lads might upset those odds and land us another win over the neighbours. Sadly, however, it wasn’t to be. Galway took […]

Same again for U20s

The team for tomorrow evening’s Connacht U20 football final at Tuam Stadium (7.30pm) was named earlier this evening. It’s the same team that started the semi-final against Sligo last week and here it is: Mayo (Connacht U20 final v Galway 10/7/2019): Jamie McNicholas (Kiltimagh); Jack Coyne (Ballyhaunis), Rory Brickenden (Westport), Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine); Aaron McDonnell (Ballinrobe), Conor Beirne (Breaffy), Eoghan […]

U20s in action this evening

It’s semi-final night in the Connacht U20 Championship, in which our lads open their campaign with a clash against Sligo at MacHale Park. The match throws in this evening at 7.30pm. The starting team for this evening’s fixture was announced yesterday and here it is: Mayo (Connacht U20 semi-final v Sligo, 3/7/2019): Jamie McNicholas (Kiltimagh); Jack Coyne (Ballyhaunis), Rory Brickenden […]

Two losses and a draw

I think it’s safe to say that the weekend’s results for the three county teams that were in action didn’t go the desired way. On Friday evening the Minors went under to Sligo in Round 3 of the Connacht MFC, losing out at Markievicz Park by 0-16 to 0-12. It was our lads’ first defeat of the campaign, as well […]

Arrangements for tomorrow evening

I’m in a bit of an odd mindset ahead of tomorrow evening’s match against Roscommon, for the simple fact that I’m not going to be there. Nor have I any hope of following the game from a distance either. Lookit, it’s not the first Championship match involving us that I’ve missed in recent years. Doubtless it won’t be the last […]

Feast of football on Saturday

This can often be an odd time of the year from a football perspective, with the Championship up and running but at the same time not enough action to get your teeth into. That shouldn’t be a complaint for punters heading to MacHale Park on Saturday. It was announced yesterday that county teams will be in action in three different […]
