Galway hurling were rocked when Johnny Glynn revealed that he would be spending the majority of 2016 in America and would be presumably out of the 2016 championship.
But we may yet see Glynn line out in the Connacht championship - just not for Galway. Glynn has been training with the New York footballers ahead of their preliminary round clash. According to New York manager Justin O'Halloran, they expect to have Glynn for that game against Roscommon.
He's training away with us, he's a big strong athlete and there is loads of football in him.
Should Glynn play with New York, it would preclude him from returning to Galway later in the championship. Galway manager Michael Donoghue had left the door open for Glynn to return to the panel should be come back during the year.
Glynn has been joined by Michael Lundy and Johnny Duane from Galway on the New York panel, and they might also have the services of former Sligo goalkeeper Vinny Cadden and Armagh's Jamie Clarke, although O'Halloran hadn't heard anything about Clarke's availability.
