New –  was certainly the theme for last Sundays FBD league at Advantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada on Sunday last. We had a new season, a new format for the FBD League, new rules, a new Mayo Management team, a new Leitrim manager and a new management team, a new Leitrim Sponsor, and Leitrim sporting their New Jerseys. Well if new was the theme beforehand, extraordinary was the word on every body’s lips afterwards as Leitrim turned in a massive performance to draw level with a vastly experienced Mayo team. To cap matters off it became a historic occasion when we had for the first time a game in a recognised competition finished on penalties. What a day to remember. This was a great start to the year for the new manager and his backroom team and indeed for the players and with performances like this we can look forward to the year ahead. Well done to all involved.
