Andy Reid joins the 'Mayo for Sam' bandwagon and a holy inappropriate subs bench in Straffan

At least one Dub reckons this is Mayo’s year and some unusual pitch side furniture at a Kildare GAA club.

But we think the Mayo massive will make room for Irish soccer player Andy Reid. The Dubliner becomes the latest in a very long line of folks to embrace the 'Mayo for Sam' campaign this summer.

Based on what we saw at the weekend, the Nottingham Forest man may well have joined a winning team.

Prayer welfare

We know times are hard in the world of GAA but what popped up on the sideline at a junior match in Straffan yesterday has to be a first. A bench from a church was called into service for the subs and the scene was snapped by Evening Herald racing journo Niall Cronin.
