Armagh name team for Rossies battle

Armagh have named their team to make the trip to Roscommon this weekend in round two of their league campaign.

Armagh got up and running last weekend with a nine-point win, away from home, against Cavan.

They’re on the road this weekend again, and Shane McCormack has named the same 15 he named in round one.

There was one late change to the starting line-up against Cavan, with Blaithin Mackin replacing Aoife Lennon before the throw in.

Starting line up

Anna Carr kept a clean sheet in last week’s victory over Cavan. He kickouts were exceptional and provided a great platform for Armagh’s attacks.

Clodagh McCambridge was another who excelled and proved to be a not that the Cavan attack simply couldn’t crack.

Once again Shauna Grey and Louise Kenny will start as the corner backs, just as they did in round one.

Crossmaglen’s dynamic defender Lauren McConville, who was Armagh’s Player of the Year in 2022, starts a six.

On the wings, Grace Ferguson and Cait Towe will once again complete the half back line this weekend.

Blaithin Mackin started at centerfield last week, as a late addition to the starting line-up, partnering Niamh Coleman.

Forward line

Eve Lavery, named at midfield, started at wing half forward in place of Aoife Lennon, who came on and scored a goal with her first touch.

Lennon has been named at wing half forward, just as she was against Cavan. Aimee Mackin and Emily Druse make up the rest of the half forward line.

Aoife McCoy also grabbed a three-pointer against the Breffni Blues. Alex Clarke and Kelly Mallon keep their place in the full forward.

Both Aimee Mackin and Kelly Mallon hit three points apiece in last week’s win and will hope to add to their tallies on Sunday.

Armagh once again have a strong bench to call upon and like last week, the subs will see plenty of action.
