Former Roscommon footballer Nally joins Longford squad
Longford have recruited the services of former Roscommon footballer Mark Nally for the 2018 season.
The Roscommon Gaels clubman, who represented the county’s Under-21 team and made three championship appearances for the Roscommon seniors in the 2014 season, could feature for Longford this weekend.
Longford manager Denis Connerton confirmed that the 24 year-old was training with his squad after declaring for his parents’ home county. He remains, however, committed to his club team in Roscommon.
“We’ve been looking at Mark’s performances for quite a while now, and we knew about his connections and that he hasn’t been involved with Roscommon,” explained Connerton. “So we asked him in, and he obliged. He’s a big lad, and he’ll be with the team on Sunday.”
Longford play Meath in the O’Byrne Cup semi-final in Navan on Sunday.
Former Leitrim captain Paddy Maguire has joined Dublin club St Brigid’s.
