Mayo hit by injuries ahead of league campaign

Key quartet face spell sidelined

Mayo will be minus four players for the early rounds of the upcoming Allianz Football League.

Speaking on Sunday, when his side's Connacht FBD League clash against Galway was postponed, boss Stephen Rochford confirmed the bad news for Mayo fans, who will be hoping the four players are all fit for the championship later this year.

"We will be without Seamie O'Shea with a knee injury for the vast majority if not all the League," Rochford is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.

"Donal Vaughan has got a problem that will reduce his participation and he will probably not play in it.

"Chris Barrett picked up an injury coming off the international Rules which will keep him out for at least the first four games.

"[Lee Keegan] is making good progress. He is abroad at the moment and we will assess him when he comes back, but at the moment we are planning that he won't be available for the League."

Mayo start their National Football League campaign against Monaghan at Clones on Sunday, 28 January, before going on to face Kerry, Galway, Dublin, Kildare, Tyrone and Donegal over the subsequent six weekends.

Galway boss Kevin Walsh has confirmed, meanwhile, that Corofin's Gary Sice has called time on his county career, joining Michael Meehan and Finian Hanley in retirement.
