Sligo & Leitrim minors in must-win championship clash

Sligo and Leitrim minor gaelic footballers meet this Friday evening in the Connacht minor football championship at Markievicz Park, with both counties knowing a win is essential to keep their respective hopes of reaching the play-off stages of the championship alive.

Throw-in is at 7pm and the game is being streamed live by Connacht GAA for €10.

Sligo are currently pointless after two round-robin games to date in the Connacht minor championship, having lost to Galway and Mayo.

Adrian Dockery’s Leitrim have one point from two games played – they produced a gutsy fightback in added time last weekend to draw with Roscommon in Carrick-on-Shannon (1-13 each).

The Connacht minor championship is being played on a round-robin basis this year with the top team from the group stage qualifying directly for the provincial final.

The second and third placed teams will contest a single semi-final.
