The first of the trial games at the top pitch at McHale Park lacked the intensity of the second but it was evident a number of players were pushing hard to impress the management team.
There were very strong showings from the Castlebar Mitchels contingent with eye-catching performances from the Feeney brothers, Alan and Richie, while Eoghan Reilly and Donal Newcombe showed up well.
Aiden Campbell's return to the Mayo squad continues to be a major talking point and the Swinford player looks in top shape, nailing 1-1, while Burrishoole's Jason Doherty also looked lively, contributing 1-2.
James Kilcullen from Ballaghaderreen was another to put in an eye-catching performance around the middle of the field, Ballintubber's Jason Gibbons also doing quite well in this department.
Scorers for Greens: Jason Doherty 1-2, Enda Varley 0-4, Aidan Campbell 1-1, Cillian O'Connor and Andrew Farrell 0-2 each, Michael Nestor and James Kilcullen 0-1 each.

The second game was a 13-a-side affair between two well matched teams. In the end two well taken goals by Kiltimagh's Liam Lydon decided the issue.
There were some strong defensive performances on both sides, Ronan Rochford (Crossmolina), Owen Hughes (Knockmore), Stephen McCarron (Ardnaree) and Ollie Feeney (Islandeady) very prominent.
Paraic O'Connor, Liam Lydon and Andy Moran produced most of the scores for the Greens, while for a weaker Reds side the likes of John Varley, Kieran Conroy, Vinnie Feeney and Peter Collins put in some impressive work but it would be fair to say both teams were trying.
Scorers for Greens: Liam Lydon 2-2, Padraig O'Connor and Andy Moran 0-3 each, Ronan Doherty 0-2, Oisin Quinn 0-1.
Scorers for Reds: Vinny Feeney and Niall Prenty 0-2 each, Ronan McNamara and Eoin McCormack 0-1 each.
