We’ve named our match day panel for Sunday’s NFL Division One Round 7 meeting with Kildare at Páirc Seán MacDiarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon (throw-in 1.45pm). Here’s the full list:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Kildare 27/3/2022): Rory Byrne (Castlebar Mitchels); Lee Keegan (Westport), David McBrien (Ballaghaderreen), Padraig O’Hora (Ballina Stephenites); Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore, captain); Jordan Flynn (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Matthew Ruane (Breaffy); Conor Loftus (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Jack Carney (Kilmeena), Fergal Boland (Aghamore); Aiden Orme (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Ryan O’Donoghue (Belmullet). Subs: Colm Reape (Knockmore), Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels), Michael Plunkett (Ballintubber), Rory Brickenden (Westport), Enda Hession (Garrymore), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Conor O’Shea (Breaffy), James Carr (Ardagh), Paul Towey (Charlestown Sarsfields), Darren Coen (Hollymount/Carramore).
So, it’s three changes – one enforced – from the team that started against Tyrone at Healy Park last Saturday evening. Into the starting fifteen come Padraig O’Hora, Conor Loftus and Jack Carney and they replace Donnacha McHugh, Fionn McDonagh (injured) and Paul Towey.
There are also two changes to the bench with fit-again Paddy Durcan back, while James Carr makes the match day panel for the first time in this year’s League campaign. No sign of Robbie, though, nor Diarmuid, nor, worryingly, Cillian neither.
The best of luck to the lads on Sunday.
