The team for Sunday’s league match with Galway has been announced (once again, it’s only fair to acknowledge the fact that the Mayo GAA website is first out of the traps with the news). As expected, Johnno keeps faith with the players who secured the win over Kildare and so the only change to the starting line-up is an enforced one. Pat Harte replaced the injured Trevor Mortimor in the first half at Newbridge and he keeps the left half-forward position for Sunday. Here’s the team:
David Clarke; Tom Cunniffe, Kieran Conroy, Colm Boyle; David Heaney, Trevor Howley, Keith Higgins; Ronan McGarritty, Tom Parsons; James Gill, Alan Dillon, Pat Harte; Conor Mortimor, Austin O’Malley, Andy Moran.
No surprises there, I suppose. Pat did well when he came in the last day and so it would have been a bigger surprise had he not been given the nod to start on Sunday in place of the unfortunate Trevor Mortimor. Apart from that, there were no other changes to the team that were screaming to be made and I guess the sixty-four thousand dollar question is whether or not there will be any (many?) by full-time on Sunday.
