Flynn to miss Allianz League opener

Groin injury sidelines Dubs star

Dublin forward Paul Flynn will miss the start of the Allianz Football League campaign due to a recurring groin injury.

The competition opens with a mouth-watering repeat of last year's All-Ireland SFC final as Dublin and Kerry face off at Croke Park next Saturday (LIVE on Setanta Ireland).

However, the Fingallians man is set to miss the game as he continues his recovery.

“The rehab has been going well and there has been no reaction so far,” the four-time All Star said.

“The one thing that any player or athlete worries about is their fitness. If you can keep the body good and you can train hard you can give everything every time, every game.

“So yeah, obviously I’d be worried about it.”

Meanwhile, Dublin hurlers are missing several key players for Sunday's Bord na Móna Walsh Cup clash with Galway.

Peter Kelly is recovering from a dislocated knee, while Paul Schutte is still a few weeks away from full fitness after dislocating his shoulder.

Ryan O’Dwyer remains out as he recovers from an injury picked up last October, but Oisin Gough has returned to the squad.
