Four Claremorris players called into the extended Mayo pre-season training group...... Aidan Butler, James Stretton, James McCormack and Conor Diskin.  Stretton (22) was in two years ago but needed shoulder surgery and missed out. Outstanding for Claremorris all year he has blinding pace, great tackling ability and is a natural leader. Butler (24) has played both Minor and U21 while the other two lads are both U21. Diskin is U20 for next year so might be left with that team.

Peter Naughton and Marcus Park called from Knockmore. How many players altogether are in the winter training panel?

Two players with a lot of potential, would be surprised if at least one of them don't make the panel over the next couple of years.

What positions do those Claremorris lads play hardy?

Aidan Butler and James Stretton are corner or wing backs. James McCormack is a terrific fielder who has played from centre back to centre forward. Conor Diskin plays from midfield to full forward.

Seen there today about Cian Hanley being released from contract by Brisbane. Could be worth a run next year in the league if he decides to come home?

They have re-signed him as a rookie. You can only be on a rookie contract for a limited number of years then have to be let go or promoted to senior list.

I believe Lions applied for a special dispensation for Cian, presumably due to his injuries and the fact he is an international rookie.

Any players who are forwards with decent size and speed, with the ability to look a back in the eye and say "I am going to going get by you", oh and can kick the ball over the bar from 35-40 yards out.

Not asking a lot, but we all know what we need.

Some very impressive players on Westport's U21 side. Great to see the third town in the county beginning to emerge as a football power.

Anybody have any report from the FBD game against Leitrim.

Plenty new faces due to the team holiday - anyone impress / look like a likely prospect?

Some nice touches at time but the conditions destroyed any attempt at good football. Positive displays for Park, Butler,McCormack, Douglas and Treacy of the starters and from Gibbons, Naughton and Gallagher of the subs. Big Barry had a poor 40 mins and a few of the new boys will hope for another chance. All in all ....not much to  see.
