Up to ten players on the Mayo Ladies senior football squad have walked out ahead of their All Ireland SFC qualifier clash with Cavan on Saturday next.
That’s according to a front page story in today’s Mayo News.
Among the players who have withdrawn from the squad are team captain Sarah Tierney, vice captain Fiona McHale and all time leading scorer Cora Staunton. Team selector Michael McHale has also opted out.
The Mayo News understands that the players who have left the squad are citing player welfare issues as the reason behind their decision.
Mayo Ladies GAA Board PRO Susan Rodgers confirmed to the paper that players had left the squad in the last week.
The team is due to train again tonight before playing Cavan in Clones on Saturday in the first round of the All Ireland Qualifier group stage.
