O’Connor shuffles Kerry pack as Laois come calling

Kerry boss Jack O’Connor has reshuffled his team for tomorrow’s visit of Laois to Killarney with seven personnel changes from last weekend’s win over Cork.

Dr Crokes’ Johnny Buckley makes his league debut at left half-forward with goalkeeper Tomás Mac a t’Saoir, Shane Enright, Tomás Ó Sé, Jonathan Lyne, Shane Scanlon and Kieran O’Leary also coming into the side.

The half-back and half-forward line sees the most change with Eoin Brosnan flanked by different players after having Peter Crowley and Shane Enright either side of him in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Darran O’Sullivan has new partners in the forwards with Paul Galvin and Kieran Donaghy making way.

Meanwhile, Ciarán McKeever yesterday slammed the GAA for dismissing Armagh’s racist claims made against Laois in Portlaoise on Sunday.

The Orchard County captain believes his county board were forced by the GAA to agree to a joint statement admitting their statement describing racist abuse allegations of their players in O’Moore Park did “not accurately reflected what occurred”.

Ahead of his Central Hearing Committee meeting last night following his sending off in the game, the Armagh captain tweeted: “I have yet til comment on wat went on last weekend and won’t comment but very disappoint in the #GAA maken armagh and loais brush it under the table wit joint statement yesterday! I just hope I get fair justice 2nite on something tat my name was put til tat never happened.”
