The Mayo News has tonight come out with two exclusives concerning high-profile moves within the club scene. One is on the playing side and the other relates to management.
The player in question is Donal Vaughan, with Mike Finnerty reporting (here) that he’s in the process of completing a transfer from Ballinrobe to Castlebar Mitchels. Ballinrobe dropped down from senior to intermediate this year after a 15-year stint in the top tier and, according to Mike’s report, Donie played senior championship football for them for eleven of those years. He’s been living and working in Castlebar for the past three years.
Separately, the paper is also reporting on Twitter tonight that James Horan has been appointed manager of the Westport senior team. According to this report the appointment is for a three-year term.
