Galway’s League of Ireland future

This afternoon will mark an important day for the future of senior football in Galway.

The FAI will release the recommendations made by former South Tipperary County manager Ned O'Connor following his recent discussions with the relevant stakeholders.

O'Connor met with officials from SD Galway, Mervue United, Galway United Supporters Trust, and the Galway FA to compile a report outlining what he thinks is the best way forward for League of Ireland football Corribside.

On the pitch last Saturday SD Galway caused a significant shock when derailing Longford Town's promotion push at Flancare Park.

Two splendid Enda Curran goals were enough to earn Tony Mannion's side a victory that moves them within three points of Mervue United, who had divided the spoils with Wexford Youths on Friday.

Tomorrow evening at Eamonn Deacy Park SD Galway host Finn Harps and they will be anxious to replicate the solid display which vexed the midlanders.

Goalkeeper James Keane, Brian Geraghty, Colm Horgan, Willie Enubele, Mixie Harty, Brian Gaffney, and Curran have all contributed to the SD Galway cause over the past month.

Mervue United will return to the scene of their most encouraging result this season when visiting the RSC tomorrow.

A convincing FAI Cup triumph over Waterford United last month injected Mervue with hope, and Mervue, have registered four points in their past two matches outfoxing Athlone Town at Lissywoolen and drawing with Wexford Youths.
