I’m back home, feeling a tad bleary-eyed after the night’s flying but I see that details of the team and subs for tomorrow’s league match with Armagh have been announced and so here are those details:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Armagh, 13/3/2011): Kenneth O’Malley (Ballinrobe); Tom Cunniffe (Castlebar Mitchels), Cathal Hallinan (Ballintubber), Chris Barrett (Belmullet); Peadar Gardiner (Crossmolina), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Ruaidhri O’Connor (Ballintubber); Tom Parsons (Charlestown), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber); Aidan Campbell (Swinford), Alan Dillon (Ballintubber), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore); Aidan Kilcoyne (Knockmore), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole). Subs: Robert Hennelly (Breaffy), Richie Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), James Burke (Ballymun Kickhams, Dublin), James Kilcullen (Ballaghaderreen), Ronan McGarrity (Ballina Stephenites), Enda Varley (Garrymore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Mark Ronaldson (Shrule-Glencorrib), Neil Douglas (Castlebar Mitchels), David Killeen (Ballinrobe).
There’s a good few changes from the side that started last time out against Galway – seven in all. In come Kenneth O’Malley, Cathal Hallinan, Peadar Gardiner, Ruaidhri O’Connor, Tom Parsons, Jason Gibbons and Aidan O’Shea, while out go Robert Hennelly, Alan and Richie Feeney, James Burke, Ronan McGarrity, James Kilcullen and Aidan O’Shea. The changes appear to be both as a result of this afternoon’s U21 championship clash with Roscommon and, I suspect, a general desire on the part of James Horan to keep freshening things up from game to game and not, as Johnno repeatedly did, let the side become settled at this early stage in the year.
By the way, in case you missed it, Armagh named their team and subs last night and included in their starting fifteen at centre-half forward, is BJP. Here’s the details from their side:
Armagh (NFL Division One v Mayo, 13/3/2011): Philip Mc Evoy (Dromintee); Andy Mallon (Pearse Og), Brendan Donaghy (Clonmore) Finnian Moriarty (Wolfe Tones); Kevin Dyas (Dromintee) Ciaran Mc Keever (St. Patrick’s), Paul Duffy (Pearse Og); Kieran Toner (Granemore), Charlie Vernon (Armagh Harps); Gareth Swift (Armagh Harps), Billy Joe Padden (Carrickcruppin), Malachy Mackin (St. Patrick’s); Micheal O’Rourke (Dromintee), Brian Mallon (Tir na nOg), Steven McDonnell (Killeavy). Subs: John Mc Cullagh (Carrickcruppin), James Lavery (Maghery), Colm Watters (Cullaville), Conor Clarke (Pearse Og), John Murtagh (Crossmaglen), Gareth O’Neill (Dromintee), Rory Grugan (Ballymacnab), Declan McKenna (Armagh Harps), Anto Duffy (Pearse Og), Gavin McParlan (Ballymacnab).
