From this year, minor has changed from U18 to U17, and last year provincial and All-Ireland championships were held to cater for those players who would missing out on the minor grade.
With county development squads also playing at U16, the U17 panels were largely confined to players on the age, meaning that Doody, sub goalkeeper last year, was the only Cork panellist who was also playing at U16 level.
The Rebels reached the Munster U17 final, losing to Kerry.
Centre-forward Dylan O’Sullivan is the only representative from last year’s Rebel Óg U16 Premier 1 FC winners St Finbarr’s, and he is joined in coach Bobbie O’Dwyer’s side by two key attackers in wing-forward Hugh Murphy and Evan Cooke from Éire Óg and Ballincollig respectively.
Centre-back Diarmaid Phelan from Aghada captains the side while also included in the defence is Nemo Rangers’ Eoin Nation, son of two-time All-Ireland-winner Tony.
Last year, Cork entered two teams in the Munster U16 football competition, with one of them claiming the plate title.
