The ice and snow claimed many victims since before Christmas and with some more severe weather in the offing over the next few days, Mayo League manager Brendan Kenny is hoping that it will not claim his side’s Oscar Traynor Cup clash with the Roscommon and District League for a second time. “Hopefully it will go ahead this weekend, it’s been a long time coming now,” he said. “The weather is the weather and there’s nothing much you can do about it. But on the positive side it has given the lads a break that they would have needed. You have to have a break from the game for a while or lads will get burnt out or lose their appetitive for the game. I suppose you could also say that it has shown well for the Mayo League, with the amount of postponements, their decision to change to summer soccer a few years ago.”
The penultimate round of games in this year’s Super League sees all roads leading to Erris on Sunday afternoon. Defending champions Ballina Town went back to the top of the Super League last weekend thanks to a late winner from John Mountney against Westport United. Brendan Kenny’s men are one point clear of both Iorras Aontaithe and Westport United but have to make the trip to Erris on Sunday in a must win game for both sides. A draw would give Westport United, who are away to Ballyheane, a chance to move back into first place with only one game left.
The Premiership may be back on Saturday, but for the discerning Mayo soccer supporter there is only one place to be and that is in Belleek at 6.30pm. With three games to go and the title run-in on a knife edge, league leaders Westport United will be making the journey north to face the defending champions Ballina Town, who are breathing down their necks in the title run-in. Westport United stand two points ahead of Ballina after 15 games each; a win for the defending champions would put them back on top of the table ahead of their final two games.
