No changes for Galway


Galway manager Kevin Walsh has kept faith with the team that defeated Mayo for Sunday's Connacht SFC final against Roscommon.

The Tribesmen defeated Mayo to book their place in the provincial decider and Walsh has resisted the urge to tinker with his team for the game at Pearse Stadium.

However, there are a number of positional switches with Eoghan Kerin and Declan Kyne swapping roles in the full-back line, while Gareth Bradshaw and Gary O'Donnell move to the opposite wings.

Damien Comer has been named at corner forward with Shane Walsh taking his place in the full-forward line.

Galway (SF v Roscommon): B Power; E Kerin, D Kyne, D Wynne; G Bradshaw, L Silke, G O’Donnell; P Conroy, T Flynn; G Sice, D Comer, J Heaney; E Brannigan, S Walsh, D Cummins.

While Galway have kept the faith, Roscommon have made four changes from the team that defeated Sligo in the semi-final.

Enda Smith takes over from Senan Kilbride at full-forward as Cathal Compton comes into midfield with James McDermott missing out.

There is a change in goal as Darren O'Malley replaces Geoffrey Claffey while the final changes seees David Keenan come in for Donnie Shine.

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

Derry have made three changes from the team that defeated Louth for the All-Ireland SFC Round 2A qualifiers against Meath.

Thomas Mallon returns in goal, taking over from Michael Conlan, as Chrissy McKaigue takes his place at full-back with Ciaran Mullan moving to wing back.

Ciaran McFaul also returns to the team as Neil Forester and Liam McGoldrick drop out of the starting team.

Derry (SF v Meath): 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.

Cavan manager Terry Hyland has made four changes to his team for the 2A qualifier against Carlow at Kingspan Breffni Park.

Following the heavy defeat to Tyrone in the Ulster SFC semi-final replay, Hyland has recalled Padraig Faulkner and Ciaran Brady to the defence with James McEnroe and Niall Murray missing out.

Killian Clarke moves to the half-forward line in place of Martin Reilly as Liam Buchanan comes into midfield where he will join Tomas Corr.

Seanie Johnston comes into attack with David Givney dropping out.

Cavan (SF v Carlow): R Galligan; K Brady, R Dunne, P Faulkner; F Flanagan, C Moynagh, C Brady; T Corr, L Buchanan; D McVeety, G McKiernan, K Clarke; C Mackey, E Keating, S Johnston.
