EASTERN HARPS MIDFIELDER Tony Taylor has been handed a starting berth for next Sunday’s Connacht SFC final against Mayo.

Taylor replaces Eugene Mullen at midfield in the only change from the side that defeated Galway at the semi-final stage. Taylor was introduced in the 45th minute of that clash in Pearse Stadium for Mullen and made a positive contribution that persuaded manager Kevin Walsh to hand him a starting berth.

SLIGO: Phillip Greene (St. Johns); Neil Ewing (Drumcliffe/Rosses Point), Johnny Martyn (St Mary’s), Ross Donovan (Eastern Harps); Charles Harrison (St. John’s), Mark Quinn (St. Molaise Gaels), Paul McGovern (Eastern Harps); Shane McManus (Geevagh), Tony Taylor (Eastern Harps); Alan Costello (Coolera/Strandhill), Pat Hughes (Geevagh), Brendan Egan (Tourlestrane); Mark Breheny (St. Marys), Adrian Marren (Curry), David Kelly (Tubbercurry).
