Brogan and Flynn back for Dubs’ showdown with Westmeath

DUBLIN football manager Paul Caffrey has recalled Bernard Brogan and Paul Flynn for Sunday’s Leinster SFC semi-final against Westmeath at Croke Park.

Both Brogan and Flynn, along with Ciarán Whelan and Diarmuid Connelly, were all suspended for eight weeks for incidents during the NFL game with Meath.

Ciarán Whelan, the talisman of the team, was expected to resume at midfield, but Eamon Fennelly, who played there in Whelan’s absence, has retained his place.

Down midfielder Ambrose Rogers is an injury doubt for Sunday’s Ulster SFC semi-final clash with Armagh. Rogers is struggling with ankle ligament damage, an injury he sustained in the Ulster quarter-final replay win over Tyrone, and manager Ross Carr has admitted that his participation in the Clones clash is in serious jeopardy.

Carr’s options have been further reduced after it was confirmed that Peter Turley has a broken leg, while Martin Cole is ruled out through suspension.

Meanwhile Cavan club Ballinagh, whose senior team were hit with a six month ban by the Cavan Competitions Control Committee last Saturday following an alleged assault on a referee have, as expected, lodged an appeal to the decision.

DUBLIN (SFC v Westmeath): S Cluxton; D Henry, R McConnell, S O’Shaughnessy; C Moran, B Cullen, B Cahill; C Moran, B Cullen, B Cahill; E Fennell, S Ryan; P Flynn, J Sherlock, B Brogan; A Brogan, C Keaney, T Quinn.
