Ryan names strong team for Hastings Cup Final

Seamus Duke Roscommon’s U-21 footballers go in search of silverware when they play Longford in the Hastings Cup Final at Pearse Park in Longford on Saturday (throw-in at 2 pm).   Roscommon are unbeaten in their three games on the way to the final and team manager Michael Ryan and his selectors have picked a very strong team for the final.   Roscommon manager Mike Ryan told the People on Wednesday: ‘We are expecting a tough battle. Longford will be strong as they will have their best team on the field on Saturday.’    ‘There are a number of Sigerson Cup games on Thursday and we are hoping that we will not have any injuries out of that – so fingers crossed’ Mike Ryan said.
