Mayo drop Kilcoyne for Kildare U21 clash

MAYO manager John Maughan has made one change from the team that won the Connacht title for Sunday's All-Ireland U21 football semi-final against Kildare at Pearse Stadium.

Minor star Barry Moran is introduced at midfield to the exclusion of Aidan Kilcoyne, whose place in the half forward line is taken by Paul Doherty, who started at midfield against Roscommon.

Dermot Geraghty, Damien Munnelly and Andy Moran are included.

Kildare hopes have suffered a blow with minor Tommy Archbold not expected to be fit. Archbold suffered a serious shoulder injury in the Leinster minor final and is expected to be replaced at left corner-forward by minor captain Padraig O'Neill. Goalkeeper Tom Corley may also be replaced by one of the county's minors, James Kindregan of Round Towers.

A Donegal hurler, who also played football in Co Tyrone, has been suspended by the Ulster Council.

Setanta's Terence McDaid was banned for playing in two different counties in the same year, following a meeting on Wednesday night.

He transferred to play football with Castlederg earlier this year from Red Hugh's football club in Donegal. But, also continued to play hurling for Setanta, a club he has represented for the past 18 years.
