The divisions and rivalries were put aside across Mayo this week as the tragic news of the death of former Swinford and Castlebar Celtic player Gary Price filtered through the county. Price rose through the youths ranks at Swinford, before moving to Castlebar Celtic where he was part of the 2007 FAI Youth Cup winning side. Tributes and condolences were paid from all involved in soccer in Mayo to Price and his family during this trying time. As a mark of respect the Mayo FA has postponed all games involving his former clubs Swinford and Castlebar Celtic in the Mayo league this weekend, and have asked for a minutes silence to be observed before all games this weekend in tribute to Gary.
A 64th minute goal from Jack Reid undid St Gerald's College, Castlebar, ambitions of an FAI Schools Minor Boys All-Ireland title at Athlone Town FC on Tuesday. St Gerard's had beaten Pobalscoil Ghaoth Dobhair by a single goal from James McGinty in their All-Ireland semi-final encounter, and once again a lone goal provided the difference, but Tom Byrne's charges were not on the right side of the result this time around. It was a a double heartbreak for the Castlebar outfit, who were denied an All-Ireland Junior Cup final berth last month, after losing to Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana, in the penultimate round.
Four games played, four wins, and 12 points on the table, it has been business as usual for Westport United since the Super League swung back into action in the past number of weeks. The defending champions were always going to be the team that everybody would have to chase, but even as few as four games in they look like no one will be able to step up to the mark to haul them in this season. There nearest challengers at the moment are Ballina Town, a side who really need to deliver the title or some form of silverware this season to give them something to show for their top of the table battling over the past number of seasons. On Sunday the Beleek Park men will host Iorras Aontaithe and if they fail to see off the Erris men they could see Ballina extend their lead at the top of the table from three to six points with only five games gone in the season.
