Mayo found the extra gear that they needed when the tide looked to have turned against them in the Connacht Minor Football Championship final in MacHale Park on Sunday. With 13 minutes left on the clock, Roscommon had put themselves into a one point lead and looked like they were about to turn for home. But this Mayo side who showed they have plenty of bottle when needed against Galway in their semi-final win, upped the ante again and sprinted past Roscommon over the closing stages.

Mayo ready to rumble the Rossies

“Let there be no question, we were very lucky against Galway. Having played a championship game stood to Galway.” Said Mayo minor manager Enda Gilvarry ahead of his side’s Connacht Minor Football Championship final against Roscommon on Sunday at noon. The manager who guided Mayo to All Ireland success in his first year in charge of the team almost saw this year’s crop of minors dumped out of the championship at the very first hurdle against Galway a few weeks ago, but the battling characteristics that defined last year’s charge to All Ireland glory were on show when they battled back to eke out a single point win in Tuam Stadium.
