Kerry named their team a short time ago for tomorrow evening’s League match against us at Austin Stack Park, Tralee (throw-in 7pm). Here’s their match-day 26 for this Round 2 NFL tie:
Kerry (NFL Division One v Mayo, 11/2/2017): Brian Kelly (Killarney Legion); Ronan Shanahan (Austin Stacks), Mark Griffin (St Michaels-Foilmore), Killian Young (Renard); Jonathan Lyne (Killarney Legion), Peter Crowley (Laune Rangers), Tadhg Morley (Templenoe); David Moran (Kerins O’Rahillys), Jack Barry (Na Gaeil); Adrian Spillane (Templenoe), Paul Murphy (Rathmore), Donnchadh Walsh (Cromane); Jack Savage (Kerins O’Rahillys), Paul Geaney (Dingle), James O’Donoghue (Killarney Legion). Subs: Brendan Kealy (Kilcummin), Tom O’Sullivan (Dingle), Jason Foley (Ballydonoghue), Michael Geaney (Dingle), Barry John Keane (Kerins O’Rahillys), Barry O’Sullivan (Dingle), Brendan O’Sullivan (Valentia), Conor Keane Killarney (Legion), Conor Geaney (Dingle), Gavin Crowley (Templenoe), Denis Daly (St Marys).
The Kingdom’s line-up for tomorrow evening shows three changes from the side that started against Donegal in last Sunday’s opening round game. Out go the injured Mark Enright, as well as U21 players Jason Foley and Tom O’Sullivan. Into the team to face us come three debutants – Ronan Shanahan at corner-back, Jack Barry at midfield and Adrian Spillane at wing-forward.
With other newbies Tadhg Morley and Jack Savage also named to start tomorrow night, the Kerry line-up is a much-changed one from the side that got the better of us when we met in the League at MacHale Park in March last year. Only four of the team that started that game – Mark Griffin, Peter Crowley, Paul Murphy and Donnchadh Walsh – are named to start tomorrow evening.
In addition to that quartet, Jonathan Lyne, who came on as a sub in MacHale Park last year, is also in the team for tomorrow. So too is former Footballer of the Year, James O’Donoghue, who missed most of last year through injury but is back in action again.
