Mayo Football Podcast club members on Patreon will, no doubt, have already heard Mike Finnerty’s interview with Stephen Rochford after the county’s National League final win over Galway at Croke Park on Sunday.
As well as reflecting on the win, Mayo’s Assistant Manager looked ahead to next Sunday’s Connacht SFC quarter-final clash with Roscommon, a match that takes place back on home turf, at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park (throw-in 4pm). In doing so, Rochy issued a call to arms to the county’s supporters, asking for them to turn out in big numbers for our Championship opener.
Here’s what he had to say about this on the podcast:

The Mayo News reported today (paper and digital variants) that a crowd of around 20,000 is expected for Sunday’s match. It would be fitting for the newly-crowned National League champions to be welcomed back to MacHale Park that afternoon by a huge home crowd and it would be equally good to hear loud, sustained support for the team on the day as Kevin McStay’s charges aim to make a winning start to this year’s Championship.
