Roscommon U-20s could be facing a weakened Sligo in the EirGrid Connacht semi-final next week after the Yeatsmen confirmed their squad have been hit by a Covid 19 outbreak.

Roscommon beat Leitrim 4-16 to 0-10 in Dr Hyde Park last Tuesday and are set to face Sligo at the same venue next Wednesday but the Sligo GAA County Board have confirmed that there is a Covid outbreak in their U20 squad.

Sligo County Board chairman Sean Carroll said “Our intention is we will fulfil the fixture” but declined to say how many players were affected by the outbreak, adding “We have followed and we are following all Covid protocols to the letter of the law,” the chairman said, “and we’re in constant consultation with the HSE.
