So it’s here. A new year has dawned and with it a whole new decade. Welcome to the Roaring Twenties, 21st Century style.
From a footballing perspective, the start of a new year is always the moment where the focus turns away from what happened over the previous twelve months and starts to zero in instead on what’s up ahead. I think the vast bulk of Mayo supporters will concur when I say that this shift in focus for us is one we all need at this stage.
In twelve days time, the first shots will be fired in our 2020 footballing year when we face Padraig Joyce’s Galway in a tasty pre-season FBD joust at MacHale Park. Then, before the month is out, the defence of our National League title will have begun.
The on-field fun is now, finally, just around the corner. Here’s hoping that 2020 will be a year to remember for us for all the right reasons. Happy New Year to all.
