Number of Moycullen players to miss Mayo game after cases of Covid-19


- Advertisment -

Galway’s team for Sunday’s Allianz League meeting with Mayo shows seven changes from the side that played Meath in March before the GAA season shut down.

Padraic Joyce has handed a first league start of the campaign to Claregalway’s Conor Campbell, Salthill-Knocknacarra’s John Maher and Corofin’s Jason Leonard.

Joyce was unable to call on players from Galway senior champions Moycullen, following a number of cases of Covid 19 in the club. That ruled out Gareth Bradshaw, Sean Kelly and Dessie Conneely.

With Shane Walsh injured, Johnny Heaney captains the side.

In a statement released yesterday evening from Moycullen club chairman, Paul Clancy he confirmed the cases saying:

“The global Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone over the last seven months.

“In recent weeks the national numbers have started to rise again at an alarming rate and unfortunately there are several cases in our own community.

“This includes some of the members of our senior football squad who won the County title recently.
