We named our team for Sunday a short while ago. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Westmeath, 9/3/2014): Robbie Hennelly (Breaffy); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Kevin Keane (Westport); Lee Keegan (Westport, captain), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Enda Varley (Garrymore), Alan Freeman (Aghamore), Mikie Sweeney (Kiltane).
So it’s four changes from the side that lined out against Kerry last Sunday. Into the side come Kevin Keane, Donal Vaughan (first start of the year), Enda Varley (first competitive start since the Connacht semi-final against Roscommon last year) and Mikie Sweeney (first start since our 2009 NFL clash with Galway) in place of Shane McHale (first time he hasn’t started all year), Andy Moran, Adam Gallagher and Michael Conroy.
Westmeath have also named their starting fifteen for Sunday, which is as follows:
Westmeath (NFL Division One v Mayo, 9/3/2014): Stephen Gallagher (St Lomans); Steven Gilmore (St Lomans), Kieran Gavin (Mullingar Shamrocks), Kevin Maguire (Caulry); James Dolan (Garrycastle), John Gilligan (Ballymore), Jamie Gonoud (Tyrrellspass); David Duffy (Shandonagh), Paul Sharry (St Lomans, captain); John Heslin (St Lomans), Ger Egan (Tyrrellspass), Kieran Martin (Maryland); Callum Mc Cormack (Maryland), Des Dolan (Garrycastle), Denis Glennon (Tyrrellspass).
From what I can make out, there are just two changes from the side whipped by Derry last Sunday, with Jamie Gonoud and Denis Glennon coming in for John Egan and Ray Connellan.
