The county’s U21s, now being managed by Mike Solan, have a busy January to look forward to. For the last few years the U21s have taken part in the Hastings Cup but for 2016 they’ll be competing for the newly established U21 North West Cup. Also taking part in the new tournament are Sligo, Donegal and Fermanagh.
The competition was launched the other day at the Sligo Centre of Excellence in Scarden, at which the trophy to be used for it was handed over. This was kindly donated by the McPartland family in memory of the late Mary Mc Partland, an avid GAA supporter. The photo above was taken at the launch earlier in the week.
The fixtures facing the U21s in this competition are as follows:
- Fermanagh v Mayo, 2nd January at Belcoo;
- Mayo v Sligo, 9th January at James Stephens Park, Ballina;
- Donegal v Mayo, 16th January at Ballybofey;
- Cup and Shield Finals, 23rd January at Sligo Centre of Excellence.
I’ve no idea, I’m afraid, about throw-in times for any of these matches.
