David Clarke

Clarke, Boyle, McDonagh and Moran set to return for Mayo

MAYO manager James Horan and his selectors have made four changes to their starting 15 from the team that started against Roscommon in the Connaught semi-final for the second round qualifier against Down in Newry on Saturday night.

Goalkeeper David Clarke replaces Robert Hennelly between the post while the only change in defence is Colm Boyle replacing Michael Plunkett at centre back.,

With the enforced midfield change due to Matthew Ruane's injury, Diarmuid O'Connor moves from the half foward to partner Aidan O'Shea with Conor Loftus taking O'Connor's No. 12 shirt.

The other two changes up front sees Fionn McDonagh replacing Fergal Boland and Andy Moran starting starting instead of Evan Regan.

The Mayo team, not yet officially announced, is: David Clarke, Chris Barrett, Brendan Harrison, Keith Higgins, Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle, Patrick Durcan, Aidan O'Shea, Diarmuid O'Connor, Fionn McDonagh, Jason Doherty, Conor Loftus, Kevin McLoughlin, Darren Coen and Andy Moran.
