Weakened Leitrim minor’s crash to heavy defeat

Mayo 4-20

Leitrim 1-8

Leitrim’s under 17 footballers crashed to a heavy 21 point defeat to Mayo in the opening round of the Connacht under 17 championship.


Leitrim had just 17 players in their panel, with four players ruled out through injury and a further five players having travelled to New York for Sunday’s Connacht senior championship fixture.

The Leitrim side must now wait seven weeks for their next fixture in this year’s Connacht under 17 championship.
