Mayo forward breaks his collarbone - for the second time in the space of three months

Poor old Evan Regan.

EVAN REGAN MUST be one of the most unlucky men in Gaelic football right now.

Mayo GAA confirmed today that the Ballina forward has broken his collarbone for the second time in the space of three months.

Regan missed the entire National Football League campaign after he fell awkwardly during Mayo’s opening weekend win over Kerry.

While training on Tuesday night, it happened again and Regan is now expected to miss the entire Connacht Championship.

“Evan has been to visit the consultant and, in conjunction with the Mayo senior football medical team, will be reviewed and will continue to work to get Evan back to full fitness as soon as is possible,” a statement read.

“[It] is likely that Evan will be out of action for at least 12 weeks.

“We wish Evan a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the playing field in the green and red soon.​”
