It’s down to the final four in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior club Championships and all of the teams contesting semi-finals this weekend will now harbour realistic ambitions of lifting silverware later this month.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we preview all of the Championship semi-final matches taking place at the weekend, as well as the relegation deciders. Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty hosts the show where he’s joined by his Mayo News colleague Edwin McGreal and by special guest Stephen Drake who makes a welcome return to the podcast.
Along with in-depth preview of all the matches, the lads pick who they think will be the winners this year of the Moclair Cup. With MacHale Park unavailable at the moment to host club ties, they also discuss the thorny issue of picking and, indeed, finding suitable venues for club matches.
Switching the focus back to inter-county matters, under Any Other Business the lads consider the upcoming ‘combine’ weekend that James Horan and his management team are organising as they seek to unearth fresh talent for the Mayo panel. There’s also a brief mention of September’s All-Ireland final as Stephen reveals which one question he’d like to ask the Mayo manager about that game.
