We named our team a short while ago for Sunday’s National League Division Two semi-final against Clare. The team picked to start in this must-win promotion decider is as follows:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Clare, 13/6/2021): Robbie Hennelly (Breaffy); Enda Hession (Garrymore), Oisin Mullin (Kilmaine), Lee Keegan (Westport); Rory Brickenden (Westport), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels, captain), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore); Matthew Ruane (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Fergal Boland (Aghamore), Darren McHale (Knockmore), Bryan Walsh (Ballintubber); Tommy Conroy (The Neale), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Ryan O’Donoghue (Belmullet).
Unsurprisingly, Sunday’s team shows a few changes from the selection that started against Meath two weeks ago. There are four changes in all with a few positional switches thrown into the mix as well.
Into the team for Sunday come fit again Enda Hession, as well as Rory Brickenden, Paddy Durcan and Tommy Conroy, while out go Eoin O’Donoghue, Michael Plunkett, Jack Carney and James Carr. Switches see Stephen Coen shift to wing-back to accommodate the returning Paddy Durcan, while Fergal Boland swaps wing-back for wing-forward.
