Down will field an unchanged side for Sunday's All-Ireland minor football final against Mayo at Croke Park.

Down will field an unchanged side for Sunday's All-Ireland minor football final against Mayo at Croke Park.

Mourne manager Mark Turley has stuck with the same fifteen that started last month's 1-15 to 1-07 semi-final win over Offaly.

The benched Richard Kerr is unfortunate not make the starting line-up after his late goal against Offaly sealed the Ulster runners-up's path through to the ESB-sponsored decider.

Centre half-forward Martin Clarke, a younger brother of Down senior panellist John Clarke, scored four points against Offaly and will have a vital role to play against Mayo.

Down last won the All-Ireland minor title in 1999 when current senior star Benny Coulter, amongst others, was involved.

DOWN (MFC v Mayo): M McAllister; G Magee, C Garvey, H Magee; G McCartan, E McConville, K Duffin; J Colgan, P Fitzpatrick; D Lavery, M Clarke, S Grant; C Brannigan, R Kelly, P McCumiskey.
