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 (Westport), Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine); Aaron McDonnell (Ballinrobe), Conor Beirne (Breaffy),
Eoghan McLaughlin (Westport); Evan O’Brien (Ballinrobe), Gavin Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); John Gallagher (Mayo Gaels), Paul Towey (Charlestown), Paddy Goldrick (Charlestown); Aiden Orme (Knockmore), Stephen McGreal (Claremorris), Tommy Conroy (The Neale).
Both semi-finals are down for decision this evening, with Galway facing Roscommon in Kiltoom (throw-in 7.30pm) in the other penultimate round tie. The provincial final is fixed for this night week, also at 7.30pm, with the venue dependent on how this evening’s matches go. Further details on both semi-finals are here.
By the looks of it, the weather in Castlebar will be perfect for football this evening so, if you happen to be at a loose end, I’m sure the lads will appreciate all the support they can get for this knockout Championship fixture.
Best of luck to Mike Solan and his young charges this evening.
