Nolans in for Cats’ clash with Dublin

KILKENNY have made two changes for tonight’s Leinster U21HC decider at Parnell Park.

Paddy Nolan comes into the side at full-back in place of Andy Kearns, while James Nolan is named at left corner-forward.

Nolan’s introduction sees a positional reshuffle with Liam Ryan moving to midfield, Martin Walsh switching to left half-back and James Dowling making way.

There are also positional changes in attack with Mark Bergin playing at centre-forward, John Joe Farrell starting at full-forward and senior star Richie Hogan at right-corner-forward.

Opponents Dublin have announced an unchanged side and will field four players who featured in the Leinster SHC final against Kilkenny.

Oisín Gough plays at left corner-back, Simon Lambert is at midfield, David Tracey starts at centre-forward and Liam Rushe is full-forward.

Senior panellists Finn McGarry and Peter Kelly play in goal and at right half-forward respectively. The side also features at centre-back Rory O’Carroll, who dropped himself off the Dublin senior football panel in order to go travelling later in the summer.
