Galway ladies footballers face Dublin in league semi-final

The Galway ladies footballers head to St Loman's GAA club in Mullingar this Sunday (2pm ) when they face Dublin in the Tesco Homegrown division one league semi-final.

Team manager Kevin Reidy, pleased with the performances to date, says it is important his side continues to build, and they will also need to improve if they are to advance to a league final against either Kerry or Cork on May 9.

"We have been going fairly well and we had a good win over Mayo (1-16 to 2-06 ) the last day out. We need to build on that victory and make sure we produce another good display next Sunday," Reidy says.

"We have a nice blend of experienced and younger players in the squad and they are gelling really well together, so we are hopeful of finishing the league campaign on a high note.

“We have played Dublin already in the league and they are a good side, but if we play to our potential, we believe we can qualify for the league final."

The Galway team was due to be selected last night (Wednesday ) by the management team of Kevin Reidy, Martina Cummins, Willie Ward and Dave Mulally, but there are unlikely to be many changes from the side that defeated Mayo.

Defensively Galway will look to fullback Emer Flaherty, Fabienne Cooney, Nicola Ward and Sinead Burke to nullify the Dublin forwards.

Annette Clarke and Ger Conneally are likely to be at midfield, and up front Tracey Leonard, Edel Concannon, Lorna Joyce and Louise Ward will be expected to lead the way.
