AUDIO: @MayoGAA SFC match report v @NaStiofanaigh by Junior Reporter Matthew McCormack (9)

Matthew McCormack, Cloongowla, a member of our club’s U10 boys team, was our Junior Reporter for today’s Treanlaur Catering Mayo SFC clash with Ballina Stephenites at Flanagan Park. [audio:] He helped Tom Carney and his commentary team of Tom Maughan (Ballina Stephenites) and Liam Horan (Ballinrobe) with some stats and even gave his view at half-time. Somewhat presciently, he predicted a Ballina Stephenites comeback at that stage – and his prophecy proved all too accurate, alas as they rallied to beat us by two points in a closely-contested encounter. Matthew is interested in sports journalism and as you will discover when you listen to his match report here, he’s a dab hand at it. The young members of the club had a big part to play today – Eva Gallagher, also 9, and a member of the club’s U10 ladies football team, delivered a beautiful rendition of the national anthem. Matthew and Eva both showed big day temperament today. Well done to the two of them. You can listen to Tom Carney’s full commentary on the game HERE
