We’ve just named our team to play Cavan on Saturday night. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Cavan, 9/2/2019): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stepnenites), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Michael Plunkett (Ballintubber), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber), Matthew Ruane (Breaffy); Fionn McDonagh (Westport), Aidan O’Dhea (Breaffy, captain), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Colm Moran (Westport).
So it’s five changes from the team that started up in Healy Park against Tyrone. In come David Clarke, Ger Cafferkey, Matthew Ruane (who make his full League debut, having come on as a very late sub in Omagh), Evan Regan and Colm Moran, who also makes his senior debut. Out go Robbie Hennelly, Brendan Harrison, Donal Vaughan, Ciaran Treacy and Brian Reape.
We last played Cavan two years ago and the team named for Saturday night contains seven survivors from that clash, which the Breffni County won by two points. David Clarke, Keith Higgins, Paddy Durcan, Lee Keegan and Andy Moran all started for us that day, while Stephen Coen and Evan Regan came on as subs.
