Antrim team to play Leitrim

Aghagallon’s Luke Mulholland comes in to make this senior inter county debut today on the Antrim team to play Leitrim at Corrigan Park at 3pm. There were rumours that Enda McGinley and his backroom team may make wholesale changes for this game, now that the Saffrons had already secured top spot in their section, but McGinley has stuck mainly with the team who lined out again Louth and Leitrim in the two previous rounds.

There are a few positional swithes in the six defenders, but only one personel change with Eunan Walsh, who has been a used sub in the previous two games, coming in for Declan Lynch, though not in the same position.

The midfield pairing of Conor Stewart and Niall McKeever stays the same while up from Dermot McAleese and Paddy McBride start on the half-forward line, McBride starting for the first time and McAleese moving up from the half back line.

Ruairi McCann is employed on the edge of the square this time, instead of his normal half forward position, with Kevin Small dropping down to the bench with Odhran Eastwood and Ryan Murray in the corners.
