The Connacht Council is insisting that Galway and Roscommon must play their remaining round robin game against each other in the FBD League next weekend - even though both sides have qualified for next month's FBD final, while the other remaining pool game between Mayo and Sligo will go ahead as planned next weekend also.

Galway and Roscommon have qualified for the final of the FBD league, which was fixed for February 18 at the outset of the competition.

But Roscommon manager Kevin McStay wants the FBD League final to take place next Friday night.

With Michael Glavey’s playing in an All-Ireland club semi-final on Sunday, he said his players want to go to that match to support their colleagues.

He also says the Feb 18th date for the FBD final is right in the middle of the national league campaign.

However, a spokesperson for the Connacht Council said the FBD final will go ahead on February 18 as planned, and that all counties will be expected to fulfil the final round next weekend  - even though the final pairing has been decided.
