Mayo’s return to the top tier of the National League this spring has proved very successful, with Sunday’s win over Kildare confirming their place in the Division One final. It’ll be the county’s second appearance in the decider in four years and, like 2019, their League final opponents on Sunday at Croke Park will be Kerry, the form team so far this year.
In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast, host Rob Murphy is joined by podcast regular Edwin McGreal and by special guest Kevin McStay to look ahead to Sunday’s League decider. They first review Sunday’s win over Kildare and what we learned from it before examining in detail the county’s League form in Division One this spring, with a particular focus on the positive and negative aspects of Mayo’s attacking play.
Turning the focus towards Sunday’s big game at Croke Park, the lads ponder on the relative importance of the fixture and the prize at stake, as well as how it fits into the team’s overall objectives for the year. They also consider how best to mark the menace that is David Clifford.
