This weekend sees the start of the club football Championships within the county, with battles for possession of silverware at Senior, Intermediate and Junior levels set to dominate football discussions over the coming weeks.
In this podcast episode, available to club members in specially extended format, Rob chats with Mike Finnerty of the Mayo News and Balla defender Ger Flanagan to set the scene ahead of the Round 1 Championship games this weekend.
The lads pick out their the main contenders for the Moclair, Sweeney and McDonnell Cups this year and they look at some of the main talking points. Can anyone stop Knockmore doing three in a row? Will Westport finally realise their potential? Could some other club ‘do a Belmullet’ and come from nowhere to reach a county final? They also run the rule over the teams likely to be in the mix for Intermediate honours and pull they together a shortlist for the Junior championship.
To finish, Rob throws some Quickfire questions at Mike and Ger to see what games and players they are most looking forward to seeing this weekend.
