Morning everyone – it’s another quick Monday morning one from me, as I’m hitting the road back to Dublin shortly. Collating match reports is, in any event, an easy enough job to do after an FBD game as there’s never a whole pile of reports to gather. Here’s what’s out there this morning on yesterday’s defeat to the Rossies.
Let’s start with the Mayo Advertiser, where Colm Gannon has his match report and an audio piece on the game, which also includes a few post-match quotes from Stephen Rochford. In that audio, Stephen provides some details on the injuries, saying that Keith Higgins and Kevin Keane will need to get scans and are likely to miss the first few League games, while the knock that forced Conor Loftus off appears to be just a minor one.
Talking of audio, in case you missed them yesterday, my own post-match mumblings that I did after the final whistle sounded at MacHale Park are here.
Sticking with the locals, John Melvin’s match report in the Connaught Telegraph is here.
The pick of the nationals is the Irish Independent, where Colm Keys’ match report (here) contains quotes from both Stephen Rochford and Kevin McStay. The Irish Times, meanwhile, have an utterly daft headline over their match report, while all the Irish Examiner can muster is a half-hearted round-up of all the day’s FBD action. Even the Irish Sun manages to top that with a full-blown match report (here).
That’s the lot – time for the rubber to hit the road. Have a good day, y’all.
