MAYO HAVE MADE two changes to their full-back line for this weekend’s Connacht Senior Football Championship final against Sligo at Dr Hyde Park.

After doing well as a substitute in the clash with Galway last month, Donal Vaughan is handed the number three shirt for the reigning provincial champions – with the injured Kevin Keane missing out.

Meanwhile, Ger Cafferkey replaces Chris Barrett at corner back.

The last time the sides met in a Connacht final was 2012 – Mayo sneaking a two-point win on that occasion.
