Elsewhere in group one of the FBD League this weekend, there was the meeting of NUIG and Sligo IT. Bare in mind that Galway will be playing NUI this weekend in Tuam so this game would have been taken notice of.
The ‘battle of the Colleges’ as it was dubbed, took place in Dangan in the NUIG Sports Campus with the home side coming out on top at a final scoreline of 0-11 to 0-10. Match report from Galway News can be obtained here.
The other two games that where due to take place in the FBD League in group 1, were called off due to weather. The Mayo game was even changed to Ballyhaunis but it didn’t manage to escape the adverse conditions. Just a further note on Sundays game, Niall Coleman lined out at center back for the Tribesmen and it has raised some eyebrows, can he hold his place there? Time will tell, he is a great fielder of the ball though in my opinion. Great to see the return of Eddie Hoare also who has been plagued with injury throughout his footballing career, however if the St. Michaels man can stay injury free he could be an option for the midfield.
All the best.
