We named our team and subs for Sunday’s National League Round 2 match against Monaghan earlier on today. Here’s the match day panel we’ve announced for Clones:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Monaghan, 6/2/2022): Rob Henelly (Breaffy); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Padraig O’Hora (Ballina Stephenites), Lee Keegan (Westport); Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels), Michael Plunkett (Ballintubber), Eoghan McLaughlin (Westport); Conor O’Shea (Breaffy), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore, captain); Fionn McDonagh (Westport), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber), Bryan Walsh (Ballintubber); Aiden Orme (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Ryan O’Donoghue (Belmullet). Subs: Rory Byrne (Castlebar Mitchels), Donnacha McHugh (Castlebar Mitchels), Sam Callinan (Ballina Stephenites), Ruairí Keane (Mayo Gaels), Rory Brickenden (Westport), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Jordan Flynn (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Fergal Boland (Aghamore), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Paul Towey (Charlestown Charlestown Sarsfields), Frank Irwin (Ballina Stephenites).
The team we’ve named shows three changes, one of which is, sadly, enforced, from the side that started against Donegal last Sunday. Into the team come Lee Keegan, Michael Plunkett and Bryan Walsh and they replace Donnacha McHugh, Conor Loftus and the unfortunate Tommy Conroy. There’s a bit of positional shifting too, with captain Stephen Coen moving to midfield as Padraig O’Hora shifts over to full-back, Diarmuid O’Connor switching to the Forty and Aiden Orme moving from there to Tommy’s corner forward berth.
Because we’ve once again named the full 26-man panel, the changes to the bench are also worth a mention. There’s just the one, in fact, with Aghamore’s Fergal Boland replacing Pearse Rutledge of Knockmore.
Best of luck to the lads at St Tiernach’s Park on Sunday.
