Harte keeps the faith


Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has kept faith with the team that started against Cavan for Sunday's Ulster SFC final against Donegal.

Justin McMahon and Ronan McNabb were brought into the starting XV for the semi-final replay win over Cavan and both retain their places for Sunday's game with the latter named in the half-forward line.

The only change to the matchday squad sees Conor Clarke replaces Omagh club-mate Conor Meyler on the substitutes bench.

Tyrone (SF v Donegal): N Morgan; A McCrory, R McNamee, C McCarron; T McCann, J McMahon, P Harte; C Cavanagh, M Donnelly; C McShane, N Sludden, R McNabb; C McAliskey, S Cavanagh, R O Neill.

Donegal's Neil McGee returns from a two-game suspension for the provincial decider.

McGee replaces his brother Eamonn in the full-back line, while Ciaran Gillespie is retained at left corner-back.

Donegal (SF v Tyrone): M McGinley; P McGrath, N McGee, C Gillespie; R McHugh, K Lacey, F McGlynn; R Kavanagh, O MacNiallais; A Thompson, M McElhinney, E McHugh; P McBrearty, M Murphy, M O’Reilly.

Callum McCormack returns to the Westmeath team for Sunday's Leinster SFC final clash with Dublin.

McCormack was not named in the starting line-up for the semi-final win over Kildare but he has been recalled in place of the injury John Connellan, who has been ruled out of the Croke Park tie.

Westmeath (SF v Dublin): D Quinn; K Maguire, F Boyle, K Daly; J Gonoud, A Stone, J Dolan; D Corroon, G Egan; D Lynch, P Sharry, R Connellan; K Martin, J Heslin, C McCormack.

Senan Kilbride has been named in the Roscommon team for their Connacht SFC final replay against Galway on Sunday.

Kilbride has been brought into the starting fifteen for the game at MacHale Park with Enda Smith dropping out of the side.

As well as Kilbride's inclusion, there are a number of position switches with Sean McDermott and David Murray swapping places in defence, while Ciaran Murtagh takes his place at left corner-forward with Conor Devaney moving to centre-forward. John McManus and Sean Purcell also switch positions.

Roscommon (SF v Galway): D O'Malley; D Murray, S Mullooly, N McInerney; S McDermott, J McManus, S Purcell; N Daly, C Compton; F Cregg, C Devaney, D Keenan; C Cregg, S Kilbride, C Murtagh.

Derry have named the same starting fifteen that defeated Meath for Saturday All-Ireland SFC qualifier against Cavan.

The Oak Leafers came from 1-8 to 0-4 down at half-time to beat Meath by 1-14 to 1-11 and manager Damian Barton has decided to keep faith with the team for the trip to Kingspan Breffni Park.

Derry (SF v Cavan): T Mallon; G McKinless, C McKaigue, K McKaigue; C McFaul, B Rogers, C Mullan; C McAtamney, N Holly; D Heavron, C Bradley, E Brown; J Kielt, E McGuckin, M Lynch.

There is just one change to the Longford team ahead of Saturday's qualifier against Cork.

Longford shocked Monaghan in Clones last week as they beat last year's Ulster champions 2-13 to 1-13 and manager Denis Connerton has kept the changes to a minimum for the game at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park with Barry O'Farrell coming in for Paul McGee.

Longford (SF v Cork): P Collum; C Farrelly, B Gilleran, D Brady; D McElligott, M Quinn, D Masterson; M Brady, D Gallagher; B O’Farrell, J McGivney, B McKeon; R Smyth, B Kavanagh, L Connerton.
