We named our team a bit earlier this evening for Sunday’s National Football League Round 7 clash with Tyrone at MacHale Park. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Tyrone, 25/10/2020): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Lee Keegan (Westport); Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Eoghan McLaughlin (Westport); Matthew Ruane (Breaffy), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina Deel Rovers); Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber), Mark Moran (Westport), Bryan Walsh (Ballintubber); Tommy Conroy (The Neale), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy, captain), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber).
So it’s two changes and a few positional switches from the team that started against Galway in Tuam last Sunday. In come Kevin McLoughlin and Bryan Walsh (who appeared off the bench the last day) while out go David McBrien and Fionn McDonagh.
The positional changes see Stephen Coen move to full back, with Kevin McLoughlin slotting in at centre-back. Diarmuid O’Connor shifts wings at half-forward, with Bryan Walsh slotting in on the left.
The county’s hurlers, meanwhile, start their Nicky Rackard Cup campaign tomorrow. They travel to Clontibret to take on Monaghan (throw-in at O’Neill Park is 2pm) and details of the Mayo team for this game are here.
Best of luck to both Mayo teams who are in action this weekend.
