Some Craic watching penalties. Leitrim outscored us second half 2-5 to 0-4 which was worrying even with new recruits. Leitrim player sent off was involved in the build up to their equalizer which was funny…only in the FBD.
James’s McCormack done very well for us at sentry half for first half. Fergal Boland at 10 was man of the match. Inside duo of Brian Reape and Colm Moran were good in first half but faded in second. Even Regan not good enough, too easily beat to the ball and pushed off it.
Ger Caff at full back…a disaster. I don’t know why Horan is persisting with him but it surly must end now. Midfield of Seamus O Se and Stephen Coen wiped out. In fairness I know they are in heavy training and you could see how flat footed we were in the second half so I don’t read too much into it…Galway up next in Tuam though will see the gears move up.
Finally around 4,000 at the game…mostly Mayo fans of course but great to see for a pre season game.
