The team for Sunday’s Super 8s Phase 2 clash with Meath a Croke Park (throw-in 2pm) was named a bit earlier this evening. Here it is:
Mayo (All-Ireland SFC quarter-final Phase 2 v Meath, 21/7/2019): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Lee Keegan (Westport), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Donal Vaughan (Castlebar Mitchels), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy); Fionn McDonagh (Westport), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Ciarán Treacy (Knockmore); Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Darren Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole).
So it’s three changes from the team that started against Kerry down in Killarney last weekend. In come Eoin O’Donoghue, Seamus O’Shea and Ciarán Treacy and they replace Chris Barrett, Kevin McLoughlin and James Carr.
There’s a bit of positional switching too, with Stephen Coen shifting to corner-back, while Keith Higgins – who moved to half-forward after the break in Killarney – pushed out to wing-back. With Seamus O’Shea starting at midfield, Aidan – who captains the team once again on Sunday – moves out of the engine room to centre-forward. Jason Doherty switches to corner-forward.
Best of luck to the lads on Sunday.
