Saffrons' recall for McFall

Brian McFall will make his first start of Antrim's NHL Division 1B campaign when they take on Laois at Portlaoise on Sunday (throw-in 2.30pm).

The St John's attacker, who returned from holiday last week, came off the bench at half-time in the Saffrons' surprise win over Galway last Sunday.

McFall is one of two changes Antrim boss Jim McKernan has made to his side. Malachy Molloy also comes in for Conor Cunning (hand) on the right side of the half-back line with Johnny Campbell switching to the left.

Last week's late goal hero Johnny McIntosh, who struck 1-07 against the Tribesmen, moves out from the left corner to the right half-forward berth.

ANTRIM (NHL v Laois) - DD Quinn, B McAuley, M McCambridge, G Cunningham, M Molloy, K McKeegan, J Campbell, C Herron, M Herron, J McIntosh, B Delargy, M Scullion, S Og McFadden, P Richmond, B McFall.
