County Captain

Congratulations to our senior captain Niall Murphy who has become captain of the Sligo senior footballers. Niall played a pivotal role in last week’s FBD League encounter with Roscommon and his personal tally of 1-08 kept the Yeats County in the game. The club was well represented with Peter Laffey lining out at full back and Keelan Cawley at right half back. In addition, Seán Murphy was also on the panel.

Speaking on the captaincy, Niall said that it was an honour to play for Sligo but an even bigger honour to be captain, and that hopefully it will bring success. The goal for the year is that players will improve individually, bringing on their skill sets and athletic ability, so that by the end of the year Sligo will be in a better place. There is a lot of new young players and they are blending in really well and working really hard.

Niall is the first Coolera-Strandhill player to captain Sligo since Josie Scanlon in 1935, when Sligo won the All-Ireland Junior Title. We wish him the very best for the year ahead.
