Sligo Host Creggs On Sunday

On Sunday next, Sligo’s 1st XV make their competitive home debut this season when they play Creggs in the special ‘warm-up’ Connacht League. While Creggs were relegated from Connacht Junior 1 last season, and will compete in the Connacht Junior 2 League this season, thay are certain to be very competitive opponents, as games between the sides are invariably keenly contested.

Sligo’s management are likely to continue to experiment, and they will again be without prop forwards, Ronan Gillespie [unavailable], and the injured Joe Kelly and David Kilcoyne. Out-half, Khakaber is an extremely doubtful starter following his knee injury in Tuam last Sunday
