Niall Heffernan’s Mayo u21 side picked up their third win on the trot, with an industrious if not overly impressive display in James Stephens Park in Ballina on Saturday. Heffernan made five changes from the starting 15 that lined out the previous Saturday against Monaghan in the same venue.
Some 20,000 people converged at the Quay Village and lined the streets and approach roads in Ballina to witness the recent Cannonball spectacle.
Whether a good start can be half the battle for Galway FC remains to be seen, but there is a sense Tommy Dunne's side is beginning to believe that an SSE Airtricity League first division promotion bid is possible.
With pre-season fixtures arriving thick and fast, Galway FC continue preparing for their crucial Airtricity League opener with Longford Town on March 7 as Athlone Town visit Eamonn Deacy Park this Saturday (7.45pm kick off).
Last Saturday's 5-3 success over Sligo on Mervue United's all-weather pitch was an encouraging start for the new club, achieved courtesy of an enterprising footballing display, especially in the opening period when four goals were netted. Unsurprisingly manager Tommy Dunne was pleased with aspects of Galway FC's performance, highlighting the promise of the youngsters in his squad.
Galway FC have completed another six signings to bring their squad number to 17 in advance of their opening pre-season fixture against Sligo Rovers at Eamonn Deacy Park on Saturday (7.30pm).
Building on the strong tradition of Mayomen impressing in maroon is one of Galway FC's aims and the early capture of Ballyglass native Ryan Connolly ensures there will be local interest in how the Tribesmen fare.
The dust has just about settled on the group stages of the Mayo championship and there is never a weekend that goes by that you are not intrigued or partly shocked by some of the results. I’m not quite the expert tipster I thought I was- our east Mayo friends in Aughamore let me down (Jimmy Killeen- the lethal Garrymore forward bagging himself eight points) along with Tomas Tierney’s Westport who failed to deliver on their promising victory in Tourmakeady.
Fresh off the back of their trouncing of Roscommon last Sunday, the best that Mayo have will be back in the colours of their clubs as round two of the Mayo senior and intermediate championships take centre stage this weekend.
The third round of the Breaffy House Senior Football League will take place across the top divisions of the league this weekend. At the top of division 1a after two rounds, Ballina Stephenites, Davitts, and Breaffy are all locked at the top with the maximum four points each after the two opening games. One of Breaffy or Ballina will lose their 100 per cent record this weekend when the sides meet in James Stephens Park on Sunday at 3.30pm. Last weekend Breaffy made it two from two against their neighbours with a come from behind win against Ballintubber at home. Tommy O’Reilly’s goal with a minute left in normal time was the critical score bringing his side back into the game, with fellow sub Liam Irwin levelling the game shortly after, before Alan Durcan won the game with a late, late free. The other talking point in the game was the return to action of Alan Dillon who came on as first half sub for Ballintubber and he will continue his return to full fitness this weekend against Charlestown.
