Following a scan yesterday evening and a consultation this morning, it has been confirmed that Mayo Senior Football Team Captain Andy Moran has suffered significent knee ligament damage to his knee and will be getting further medical advice during the coming days. It is likely Andy Moran will miss the remainder of the season. Andy Moran has been a real leader on the team all year and will continue to do so. Andy Moran will still play a major role in the Mayo Senior Football team on their All-Ireland campaign this year. We wish Andy a speedy recovery and no doubt will see him back again soon.
That appears to be it then: there’s little or no chance that Andy will feature for us again this year, either against Dublin or, if we get over that rather large hurdle, in the final. We now have four weeks to plan how best to fill this yawning gap in our ranks.
While Andy’s loss is a massive blow to us, we’re by no means a one-man team and it’s now up to the rest of the lads to go out and prove that this is the case. The point in the above statement about Andy continuing to be a leader of the team with a major role yet to be played by him in this championship campaign is well made and while we’d all obviously prefer this role to be performed on-field that’s not now going to happen and we just have to get on with it. And get on with it we will: let’s now go and win it for our talismanic captain.
