SURPRISE INCLUSIONS IN DOWN LINE UP

FROM ODHRÁN CRUMLEY 

Eamonn Burns has handed Anthony Doherty a surprise debut for tomorrow’s grudge match with rivals Armagh. Doherty is yet to play a senior inter county game but will make the leap in order to fill the Mournes deprivation of defensive options. 

Injury doubts Aidan Carr and Ryan Johnston have failed to make Burns’ starting fifteen but could very well be in from the start having been given until Sunday to prove their fitness.

Brendan McArdle and Ryan McAleenan will play no part as a result of long term injuries. Down chase their first Ulster Championship win since 2013 when they beat Derry at Celtic Park.

The Down team is as follows;

1. Micheal Cunningham 

2. Anthony Doherty 

3. Gearard McGovern 

4. Darren O’Hagan 

5. Darragh O’Hanlon 

6. Conaill McGovern 

7. Caolan Mooney 

8. Kevin McKernan 

9. Niall Donnelly 

10. Joe Murphy 

11. Conor Maginn

12. Shay Millar 

13. Jerome Johnston 

14. Barry O’Hagan 

15. Connaire Harrison
