The Mayo League’s representative senior side will make the trek to Letterkenny to take on the Donegal League in their opening game of the 2011 Oscar Traynor Trophy on Sunday. Michael Hutton will be once again in charge of the Mayo League side, and the Claremorris manager will be hoping to guide his side out of a tricky group that also includes the Sligo/Leitrim League and the Innishowen League. Mayo warmed up for this weekend’s game with a game away to the Roscommon League a few weeks ago. In a fortnight’s time Mayo will host the Sligo/Leitrim League in the second round of the competition, before finishing up with another long away trip to the Innishowen League on a date yet to be fixed.
Cup and play-off action in Mayo
There is other action across the county this weekend, with Clew Bay United hosting Iorras Aontaithe in the third round of the FAI Junior Cup on Sunday at 2pm, while Killala will host Maree/Oranmore in the first round of the Connacht Junior Cup also on Sunday at 2pm. One of the final things to be sorted out in the Mayo League season is the promotion play-offs in league two and that continues this Sunday in Moy Villa, when the Villa B team host Hollister at 2pm, extra time will be played if needed.
Celtic ladies look to get back to winning ways
Castlebar Celtic will look to put some points on the board this Sunday when they host Raheny United at 2pm at home. Celtic sit three points behind their visitors in the Bus Éireann Women’s National League in fourth place in the table. Celtic have two wins from their four game so far this season and are coming off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Wexford Youths in Ferrycarrig Park last Saturday evening.
