Apologies, all, but as you can understand I’m a small bit off the pace for this one. I’ve just seen that our team for tomorrow’s Round 4A qualifier against Cork tomorrow evening was announced a bit earlier on tonight. Here it is:
Mayo (All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers Round 4A v Cork,22/7/2017): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Tom Parsons (Charlestown); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Conor Loftus (Crossmolina), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen).
That makes it one change from the team that started against Clare, with Donal Vaughan dropping out and Tom Parsons coming back in. Paddy Durcan, once again available for selection, has to be content with a place on the bench.
Or not. We tend to make at least two changes on the day to the team we name in advance so maybe Paddy and someone else will start. Or maybe not.
Congrats, by the way, to Aidan O’Shea who, incredibly, will make his 100th senior appearance for the county tomorrow. Bloody hell, I’m clearly getting old.
Cork also announced their team earlier this evening – full details here.
