Sligo named their team yesterday afternoon for tomorrow’s Connacht SFC clash with our lads. Here it is:
Sligo (Connacht SFC quarter-final v Mayo, 26/6/2021): Eamonn Kilgannon (St Farnan’s); Ryan Feehily (St Mary’s), Eddie McGuinness (Tubbercurry), Evan Lyons (Shamrock Gaels); Keelan Cawley (Coolera/Strandhill, captain), Paul McNamara (St John’s), Darragh Cummins (Calry/St Joseph’s); Paddy O’Connor (St Farnan’s), Paul Kilcoyne (St Mary’s); David Quinn (Shamrock Gaels), Cian Lally (Drumcliffe/Rosses), Mikey Gordon (Easkey); Nathan Rooney (St Mary’s), Niall Murphy (Coolera/Strandhill), Seán Carrabine (Castleconnor).
The team named by Tony McEntee shows five changes from the side that fell heavily to Wexford in the Division Four Shield decider the weekend before last. Into the side for tomorrow come Ryan Feehily, Paul McNamara, Paddy O’Connor, David Quinn and Nathan Rooney, while out go John Carr, Conor McGovern, Peter Laffey, Red Óg Murphy and Peter Naughton.
Team captain Keelan Cawley – who, incidentally, also lined out for the Yeats County in the corresponding fixture back in 2010 – was a doubt for tomorrow’s game, as he picked up a knock shortly before half-time in that match against Wexford. The Coolera/Strandhill player has, though, recovered and lines out in his customary wing-back position.
