Referee David Gough will take charge of this Saturday's All-Ireland semi-final replay between Kerry and Mayo.

It will be Gough's first game involving Kerry since last year's All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin, where he came in for some criticism for a late decision not to penalise Kevin McManamon for a big hit on Peter Crowley, with Jim Gavin's men ultimately prevailing by two points.

Maurice Deegan took charge of yesterday's rip-roaring encounter, with a late Paddy Durcan point securing Mayo a 2-14 to 2-14 draw.

Meath's David Coldrick will have the whistle for the second football semi-final, with Dublin looking to keep their three in-a-row bid alive when they face Tyrone in Croke Park on Sunday.
