Sligo seconds team produced an excellent performance with a seven try to one demolition of Castlebar at Strandhill on Sunday. A superb second half performance saw Sligo cut loose and score some top drawer tries to the delight of coach Steve Alley and Manager Aaron Tansey. Following last weeks close defeat away to Creggs it was vital that the team got back to winning ways as quickly as possible and the players responded, as all good teams do, with a great performance.
