GAA: Colm Back on Crib Sheet; PARKINSON MAY STAY AFTER ALL


Scully, Michael, The Mirror (London, England)


LAOIS boss Tom Cribben has made a last-ditch effort to persuade Colm Parkinson to rejoin the county football panel.

But Cribbin remains a Parkinson fan and could still be handed his place back for the Leinster semi-final against Dublin in two weeks' time.

With Parkinson back in the fold, Cribbin is looking forward to a bruising battle with the Dubs for a place in the provincial decider.

Cribbin's young charges swept Westmeath aside with a powerful second half display of finishing at Croke Park to present him with his first Championship victory as a manager - and he was impressed by the Dubs' performance against Louth seven days previously. …
