TG4's Underdogs To Play Mayo In Final Game Of New Season

Over six weeks, the squad will be whittled down to a 28-man group which will face Mayo.

The first episode of the new season airs on TG4 tonight (September 12th) at 9:30pm. It will see a new look management team involved. Former Cork footballer Valerie Mulcahy returns but Ray Silke and Paul Galvin have been replaced by Mickey Ned O'Sullivan and Kevin Cassidy.

Last year, the Underdogs played a mostly fringe Dublin team in their final game, losing heavily at Parnell Park.

"We are looking forward to being involved in the Underdogs event this October," said Mayo manager James Horan.

"A really interesting game in McHale Park that will see many talented and ambitious players take to the field."
