Sunday match reports

Do I have to do this – really? On mornings like this one, I do wonder what’s the point. Habit, I guess. So, then, here goes – here’s the grisly online coverage of our penalty shootout Championship exit last night. Locals: Mayo News, Connaught Telegraph, Western People, Derry Journal, Derry Now.

Mayo 1-12 Derry 0-15 (after extra-time, Derry win 4-3 on penalties): we’re out on a shootout

Well, this is what jeopardy looks like. After last weekend’s high octane draw with Dublin we failed to back that performance up against Derry tonight at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park. For all that, we had victory in our grasp as the final seconds of normal time ticked down but once again we let a winning position slip. We then managed […]

Aidan O’Shea is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Yesterday’s clash with Dublin was as near as we’ve come so far ths summer to a full-throated Championship encounter. Man-on-man contests all over the pitch, the scoreboard ticking over from first to last and drama aplenty, in particular right at the death. It was strange, then, to see that only two players who graced the turf at Dr Hyde Park […]
