Four changes to Kerry side for semi-final clash

There are four changes to the Kerry side for Sunday’s Allianz FL Division 1 semi-final clash with Roscommon in Croke Park (2pm).

From last week’s win over Cork, manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice continues to rotate his goalkeepers, with Brian Kelly coming back in for Brendan Kealy, while in defence Aidan O’Mahony and Fionn Fitzgerald replace Killian Young and Pádraig O’Connor. Darran O’Sullivan is named in the full-forward as Alan Fitzgerald misses out.

Captain Bryan Sheehan, who was injured in the game against Mayo, is named among the substitutes.

Roscommon also named their team last night and have also made four alterations, having lost to Dublin last week.

Goalkeeper Geoffrey Claffey missed that game and returns for Darren O’Malley, while U21 star Sean Mullooly replaces David Keenan in the half-tine. Conor Devaney replaces Neil Kilroy at number 12 and Diarmuid Murtagh makes his first start of the league in the inside line, Donie Shine missing out.
