The team that’ll play GMIT in the FBD League at Ballinrobe tomorrow (throw-in 2pm) has been named. Here it is:
Mayo (FBD League v GMIT, 15/1/2012): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Eoghan Reilly (Castlebar Mitchels), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Michael Walsh (Ardnaree); Peadar Gardiner (Crossmolina), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis), Lee Keegan (Westport); Barry Moran (Castlebar Mitchels), Pat Harte (Ballina Stephenites); Conor O’Shea (Breaffy), Darren Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Danny Kirby (Castlebar Mitchels), Conor Mortimer (Parnells, Dublin).
Subs: Conor Campbell (Swinford), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Alan Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), Richie Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber), Michael Forde (Ballycastle), Enda Varley (Garrymore), Alan Dillon (Ballintubber), Keith Rogers (Ballaghaderreen).
As you’d expect from one match to the next in the FBD, tomorrow’s team sees widespread changes – six in all – from the side that started last weekend against Leitrim. Ger Cafferkey, Michael Walsh, Keith Higgins, Conor O’Shea, Evan Regan and Conor Mortimer all come into the side in place of Keith Rogers, Donal Vaughan, Colm Boyle, Seamus O’Shea, Enda Varley and Michael Conroy. Three lads will be making their senior debuts – Michael Walsh, Evan Regan and Conor O’Shea – with the latter’s appearance meaning that, come sundown tomorrow, all three O’Shea brothers will have appeared at senior level for the county.
GMIT have also named their team and subs for tomorrow’s game. Here are the details (with info on the county they hail from in brackets):
GMIT (FBD League v Mayo, 15/1/2012): Brendan Walsh (Mayo); Myles Kelly (Mayo), Aonghus Tierney (Galway), Diarmuid Lee (Galway); Cathal Sweeney (Galway), Johnny Duane (Galway), Jason McLaughlin (Cavan); Aidan Walsh (Mayo), Sean Boyle (Mayo); Darren Durkan (Mayo), Johnny Ryan (Galway), Niall Prenty (Mayo); Diarmuid Cronin (Wicklow), Patrick Sweeney (Galway), Niall Farragher (Galway).
Subs: Anthony Coyne (Galway), Darren Clabby (Roscommon), Donagh McIntyre (Donegal), Eoin Ward (Leitrim), Peter Laffey (Sligo), Nathan Lally (Mayo), Paul Mannion (Mayo), Barry Sheridan (Mayo), Stephen Tighe (Mayo), Darragh Quinn (Mayo), Fiachra McGinley (Donegal), Stephen Kavanagh (Galway).
And there was me saying that there didn’t seem to be too many Mayo lads within the opposition’s ranks for tomorrow!
