We’ve named our team to play Kerry tomorrow evening. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Kerry, 18/2/2023): Colm Reape (Knockmore); David McBrien (Ballaghaderreen), Rory Brickenden (Westport), Enda Hession (Garrymore); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore, captain), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Donnacha McHugh (Castlebar Mitchels); Matthew Ruane (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Fionn McDonagh (Westport), Bob Tuohy (Castlebar Mitchels), Jordan Flynn (Crossmolina Deel Rovers); Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), James Carr (Ardagh), Ryan O’Donoghue (Belmullet).
So it’s two changes from the team that lined out against Armagh the weekend before last. Into the starting fifteen come Donnacha McHugh and fit-again Diarmuid O’Connor, replacing Jack Coyne (sensibly dropping out, in light of his rigorous Sigerson duties for UL the other night) and Jack Carney respectively.
In Jack’s absence, Enda Hession shifts back to the corner. A small reshuffle in attack, meanwhile, sees Aidan O’Shea switch to corner-forward, inching ever close to that no.14 jersey. Go on, Kevin, I know you want to do it!
The best of luck to the lads tomorrow evening.
