Sligo play Creggs on Sunday next in Hamilton Park [Kick-Off 3 pm], in the opening round of the Cawley Cup. This is Sligo’s last chance of silverware for the season, so they will be determined to play to their potential, and to secure some reward for their endeavors all season. The Co. Roscommon side played in the second division of the league this season, but have just gained promotion, so they will be putting down a marker on Sunday that they they are well capable of surviving at the higher level.
Sligo should be in a position to select from a full strength panel, with the exception of Mark Boland, who has a back injury. The winners of this tie will have a home quarter final, probably against Castlebar, on March 23rd.
