Gathered at Croke Park on Sunday last for the Mayo V Donegal match was the Mayo minor footballers of 1982. Included in that team and shown in the photograph second from right in the front row is a very young John Cox who represented Mayo that year with great distinction. John is involved with Syls for the last 6 years with this years U13s and has been a great help in other club matters also.
Also the proud holder of a Mayo U 16 hurling championship medal ( obviously a very talented dual player ) . There were two very distinct clubs at that time ( and very much still are ) in Johns home parish . One for football ( Aughamore ) and one for hurling (Tourin - home club to Mayos only hurling All Star - Joe Henry ).
