Seven debutants in Leitrim team

Leitrim manager Mickey Moran has finalised his team for Sunday afternoon's Connacht SFC encounter with Sligo at Markievicz Park (throw-in 3.30pm).

There are seven Championship newcomers in the side, starting with Ronan Gallagher and Paddy Maguire in the full-back line.

St Mary's clubman Daniel Lowe will make his first SFC start alongside Tomás Beirne in midfield.

In attack, there are four debutants in the form of wing forwards Paul Brennan and Robert Lowe, corner forward Adrian Croal and full-forward Conor Beirne.

James Glancy, whose father Michael sadly passed away last week, will captain a much-changed Leitrim outfit from corner forward.

The winners of the quarter-final tie will face defending Connacht champions Roscommon in the last four on Sunday, June 12.

LEITRIM SFC v Sligo): Cathal McCrann; Dermot Reynolds, Ronan Gallagher, Paddy Maguire; Barry Prior, Gary Reynolds, Wayne McKeon; Tomás Beirne, Daniel Lowe; Paul Brennan, Emlyn Mulligan, Robert Lowe; Adrian Croal, Conor Beirne, James Glancy (capt).
