Tyrone without McMahon brothers


Tyrone manager Mickey Harte will be without Justin and Joe McMahon for Sunday's Ulster SFC opener against Derry.

The brothers are not fit enough to be included in the match-day squad, while Rory Brennan has also been ruled out through injury.

Brennan's place at centre-back goes to Niall Sludden, while Peter Harte moves into defence as cover for Justin McMahon. Cathal McShane and Richard Donnelly are named in attack.

Tyrone (SF v Derry): M O’Neill; A McCrory, R McNamee, C McCarron; T McCann, N Sludden, P Harte; C Cavanagh, M Donnelly; C McShane, M Bradley, R Donnelly; C McAliskey, S Cavanagh, R O’Neill.

Eoin Doyle returns to the Kildare team for the Leinster SFC clash with Wexford.

Doyle has not played since the International Rules last November because of a groin injury but he has returned to take his place in the starting team.

There are championship debuts for Kevin Feely, who joins Tommy Moolick in midfield, Adam Tyrrell at right half-forward and Neil Flynn at left corner-forward, while Niall Kelly and Daniel Flynn miss out through injury.

Wexford (SH v Dublin): C O'Leary; L Ryan, M O'Hanlon, E Moore; D O'Keefe, P Foley, J O'Connor; E Conroy, A Kenny; L Og McGovern, P Doran, H Kehoe; P Morris, C McDonald, D Dunne.

Donal Shanley will make his championship debut for the Model County after being named in the senior football team for the clash against Kildare.

PJ Banville returns to championship action for his native county after lining out for New York in the Connacht championship last year, while Anthony Masterson is named in goal.
