We’ve finally named our starting fifteen and subs for tomorrow night. Here are the details:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Kildare, 16/3/2013): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Tom Cunniffe (Castlebar Mitchels), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Barry Moran (Castlebar Mitchels), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Cathal Carolan (Crossmolina); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Michael Conroy (Davitts). Subs: Kenneth O’Malley (Ballinrobe), Kevin Keane (Westport) Michael Walsh (Ardnaree), Shane McHale (Knockmore), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber), Alan Freeman (Aghamore), Cathal Freeman (Aghamore), Richie Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), Enda Varley (Garrymore), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Alan Murphy (Ballinrobe).
So it’s four changes from the side that started in Newry with David Clarke coming in for Kenneth O’Malley in goals, the injured Donal Vaughan replaced by Tom Cunniffe at centre-back, Seamus O’Shea recalled at midfield with Aidan switching to centre-forward in place of Richie Feeney and Evan Regan making his full competitive debut at corner-forward instead of Enda Varley.
Ger Cafferkey, who was forced to retire before half-time at Pairc Esler following that vicious, pre-meditated assault by that runt Laverty, has recovered sufficiently to retain his starting place at full-back for tomorrow night. Shane McHale and Cillian O’Connor have both been added to the bench.
