We’ve named our team for the league clash with Cork on Sunday (throw-in 3pm), a match that could be decisive in determining whether or not we have a place in Division One next year. Here are the details of the starting fifteen and subs for Páirc Uí Chaoimh:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Cork, 7/4/2013): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Shane McHale (Knockmore); Lee Keegan (Westport), Tom Cunniffe (Castlebar Mitchels), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Cathal Carolan (Crossmolina); Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Alan Freeman (Aghamore), Michael Conroy (Davitts). Subs: Kenneth O’Malley (Ballinrobe), Kevin Keane (Westport), Michael Walsh (Ardnaree), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Richie Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), Enda Varley (Garrymore), Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Brian Gallagher (Claremorris), Darren Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Alan Murphy (Ballinrobe).
So it’s three changes – all of them enforced – from the side that started in the win against Donegal two weekends ago. Out from that team go the injured Keith Higgins, Barry Moran and Jason Doherty and they’re replaced respectively by Shane McHale, Jason Gibbons and Alan Freeman. Jason’s injury has, however, been classified as “slight” and he has been named on the bench for Sunday. There was some speculation that Alan Dillon might also feature in the replacements list but this hasn’t happened. A late addition to the subs’ list on match day, perhaps?
