Hot on the heels of last night’s team announcement by Johnno for Saturday evening’s showdown with Sligo, Kevin Walsh has named his starting fifteen for Markievicz Park. Here it is:
Sligo CSFC v Mayo: Philip Greene; Charlie Harrison, Noel Maguire, Ross Donovan; Keelan Cawley, Brendan Phillips, Johnny Davey; Tony Taylor, Stephen Gilmartin; Mark Breheny, Alan Costello, Eamonn O’Hara; Colm McGee, Kenneth Sweeney, David Kelly.
This side shows two changes from the one that beat Antrim in the NFL Division 3 final at Croke Park the day before … well, you know what day it preceded. Injured centre-back Mark Quinn is replaced by Brendan Phillips while Frank Quinn (any relation?) is replaced at no.12 by the evergreen Eamonn O’Hara. Mark Breheny and Mayo native Alan Costello – who lines out against us for the first time, although he’s been with the Yeatsmen for some time – swap places in the half-forward line.
