We’ve named our team to face Kerry in Tralee tomorrow night (throw-in 7pm). Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Kerry, 16/3/2019): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Michael Plunkett (Ballintubber), Donal Vaughan (Castlebar Mitchels); Matthew Ruane (Breaffy), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy); Fionn McDonagh (Westport), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber, captain); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), James Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels).
So it’s three changes from the team that lined out in the previous round against Galway. Into the starting team come Michael Plunkett, Conor Loftus and Kevin McLoughlin while out go Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle and Darren Coen.
Our most recent meeting with Kerry was in Round 2 of last year’s League campaign. The team named for tomorrow night contains seven survivors from then – David Clarke, Brendan Harrison, Jason Doherty, Stephen Coen, Aidan O’Shea and Diarmuid O’Connor all started for us in the game, while Conor Loftus saw action that night off the bench.
Kerry have also named their team tonight – full details are here.
