The 2003 and 2004 All Star football squads - managed by Tyrone's Mickey Harte and John Maughan of Mayo - leave Dublin this morning for Hong Kong ahead of next Saturday's exhibition match between the sides.

Both sides have included a number of replacements after players were forced to opt out due to injury and work and family commitments.

Donegal star Damien Diver was the last player to receive a call-up to the squad on Monday, replacing Laois man Tom Kelly, who broke his collar bone recently in an O'Byrne Cup match.

However, Kelly will still travel with the party today, but will not participate in the match.

The game at Hong Kong Football Club begins at 10am Irish time on Saturday.
