Mayo win in fundraiser match for the Sam Bradley Care Fund

Fermanagh 1-12 Mayo 3-14

Fermanagh were beaten by Mayo last night in a high-profile  challenge game at Brewster Park, but the football was secondary to the cause of the game, the contest played in aid of the  Sam Bradley Care Fund.

Sam, the son of Sunday Life  columnist and former  Fermanagh player Colm  Bradley, was diagnosed with  high risk Neuroblastoma, a rare  form of cancer, in January, and  is currently undergoing treatment in Belfast following surgery on Thursday.

Mayo named a strong line-up for the game as they prepare for their championship meeting with Galway on May 19.

And they enjoyed the better  of the exchanges in the first half, although a Fermanagh side missing a number of regulars hung on in the opening quarter. Only one point separated the sides at that stage.
