Despite a poor league campaign that ended in relegation, Sligo manager Paul Taylor is confident that the players are up for the challenge of the provincial championship.

Seven losses from seven games has resulted in Sligo dropping down to FL4 for 2020 as they go through a transition period with many new players being blooded through the campaign.

Taylor has no doubt that it will be an easy task to get the players up for the Connacht SFC opener against Galway at Markievicz Park.

“We will look forward to the Galway game in the championship in Markievicz Park, it is a home game for us, like any Sligo team will look forward to any game,” Taylor told the Sligo Champion.

“It won’t be tough to rally them. Yes we have a few knocks that we need to get cleared up and we are hoping to get a few players back as well.

“Again that is what your panel is for. You put out 15 players on any given day and you do the best you can. I suppose in one sense we are delighted it’s over. We knew our fate a number of weeks ago, but we are delighted now that we have taken the step back that we can start to take the step forward and that’s what this has always been about. Sligo football progressing and taking that step forward.”
