Sligo Manager Anthony Brennan has announced the appointment of his captain and vice captain for the Sligo LGFA Senior Ladies Gaelic team ahead of the Lidl NFL which kicks off on February 13th.

Captain is Geevagh’s Sarah Reynolds and Vice-Captain is Claire Dunne from St Farnan’s.

Sarah is a versatile mid fielder who has made the middle of the park her own over the last few years for club and county.

Sarah is a teacher in Strandhill National School said she being appointed Captain “is a huge honour, and it’s a massive role”. She is prepared to put in as much work and commitment it takes.

She is excited for the year ahead and wants to aim big this season by helping to get the team further in the league, move up a division and win the championship.

Her Vice-Captain will be Claire Dunne from the St Farnan’s Club.
