We’ve just named our team to play Tyrone. There’s one change from the team that started against Westmeath in the quarters last weekend and it’s a significant one – Diarmuid O’Connor is fit to start and he replaces Jason Doherty in the starting line-up. Here’s the team:
Mayo (All-Ireland SFC quarter-final v Tyrone, 6/8/2016): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Kevin Keane (Westport), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber, captain).
Once more we’ve opted to keep details of the subs bench under wraps until the programme sellers get into action tomorrow.
Whether or not we field the team named is, of course, the great imponderable. I’ve heard all sorts of stories – as I’m sure you have too – over the last few days about personnel and formations we might deploy for this one. Lord forbid: we might even go with the fifteen we’ve named.
All will be revealed ahead of throw-in at HQ tomorrow. Best of luck to the lads, however they line out.
