Sligo promotion hopes revived with London victory

Sligo’s senior Gaelic footballers revived their Division Four promotion hopes with an easy victory over London at Markievicz Park on Sunday afternoon.

Tony McEntee’s side started the game brightly with Niall Murphy and Brian Egan finding two goals in two first-half minutes.

Points from Alan Reilly (three), Seán Carrabine (two) and Darragh Cummins increased the margin futher before the interval.

Conor Griffin received his marching orders early in the second half, however, this did not affect the Yeats County as they pushed for victory with Coolera/ Strandhill clubman Murphy helping himself to a goal and four points.

Sligo travel to Waterford for their next game on Sunday, March 20th with 2pm throw-in time scheduled at Fraher Field.
