Mayo Admit That Lee Keegan Should Have Been Withdrawn Immediately

Written 2 years ago by Will O'Callaghan


The Mayo management team have admitted that Lee Keegan should have been withdrawn immediately after his collision with Eoin Cadogan during yesterday’s Division 1 clash in the Allianz National League.

Instead, the Mayo captain was allowed continue playing for several minutes before he was called ashore and the county board released a statement in the hours after the game, acknowledging that the All Star defender “should have been withdrawn as a precaution a number of minutes earlier when the collision occurred.”

The Connacht champions were well beaten – 1-18 to 0-12 point and afterwards manager Stephen Rochford was asked about the decision-making surrounding Keegan’s replacement.
