3 changes each for Mayo and Cork ahead of potential winner-takes-all clash

Lidl NFL Division 1 Round 6 – SUNDAY

Mayo v Cork, Elvery’s MacHale Park, 12pm (G Chapman, Sligo) – part of a double header with GAA

MAYO and Cork have made three changes each ahead of a crucial clash in the race for a semi-final place in Division 1 of the Lidl Ladies National Football League.

Cork are currently fourth in the standings, three points clear of Mayo, and a victory for the Rebelettes on Sunday (12.0) would see them through to the knockout stages.

The scene is set for a keenly-contested clash at Elvery’s MacHale Park, in what is a double-header fixture ahead of the Mayo v Monaghan men’s clash at the Castlebar venue.

Aisling Kelleher, Emma Spillane and Sadhbh O’Leary have been drafted into the Cork line-up in place of Maire O’Callaghan, Ciara O’Sullivan and Libby Coppinger.

Mayo, meanwhile, have brought in Michelle Treacy for Laura Brennan in goal, while Feena McManamon and Emma Needham earn outfield spots in place of Ella Brennan and Danielle Caldwell.

Sarah Rowe, who’s been playing with Collingwood in the Australian Women’s AFL, is a notable inclusion in the Mayo panel at number 30.
