The venue for the U21 North-West Cup match against Sligo that’s set to be played tomorrow has been changed again. In what has become a bit of a North Mayo magical mystery tour, the game – which was first fixed for Ballina before being switched the other day to Knockmore – will now take place at Deel Rovers’ pitch in Crossmolina. Throw-in time tomorrow remains 12pm.
This isn’t the only upcoming match that has been subject to a venue change. Sunday week’s FBD clash against Roscommon – a nice, pre-season Division One taster, one that I’m planning to get to – has been shifted from Ballinlough to Hyde Park. This change makes complete sense, given the size of the crowd that’s likely to show up for it and I guess we can hardly start belly-aching about being shunted to Roscommon for this one in the way we did so audibly last June.
