Ever present all season, White lost his place after the Munster final following an indifferent performance, but he has been turning in some outstanding displays with his club Carrigtwohill and his division Imokilly in recent weeks, and deserves his recall.
It’s the only change from the team which defeated Dublin in the semi-final. In last year’s Munster final against Tipperary White scored a magnificent goal to see off the Premier County, and the selectors will be hoping he has found his form again. He comes in at full forward in place of Donagh Stack.
Derry have kept faith with the team that started against Laois in last Sunday’s All-Ireland minor football championship semi-final for Saturday’s replay in Navan (6 pm).
Meanwhile Dublin U21 coach Sean Lane is keeping his fingers crossed that senior player Peadar Carton will be available to face Galway in the All-Ireland hurling final on September 9.
Carton wasn’t sent off in the All-Ireland senior qualifier against Tipperary, but he was subsequently suspended, on video evidence, for a dangerous pull on a Tipp defender and received an eight-week suspension.
On appeal, his case is currently being dealt with by the Central Hearings Committee (CHC), but Lane is likely to take the matter all the way to the Disputes Resolution Authority should the CHC rule against his player.
