O'Dwyer names unchanged Wicklow side

Wicklow have announced their team for Sunday's Leinster SFC first round replay against Louth at Croke Park, throw-in at 2.10pm - manager Mick O'Dwyer has kept faith with the fifteen players that started last weekend's drawn game.

That means there is no starting place for experienced defender Brendan O hAnnaidh. The Bray Emmets clubman, who missed last Sunday's 0-12 to 1-9 replay draw at Parnell Park, is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Nippy corner forward Tommy Gill is eligible to play this weekend as he was sent off for two yellow cards in the Parnell Park tie.

Gill could be a key man again for Wicklow - the diminutive Rathnew player shot 0-6 in the sides' original meeting at Croke Park on May 20, including a late, levelling free.

Tony Hannon, who operates in the left corner, tallied up 0-5 in last week's replay and will hope to impress again for the Garden county.

The winners of Sunday's third match between Wicklow and Louth will play Wexford on Sunday, June 17 - with the venue to be Parnell Park if Louth qualify, and Carlow's Dr. Cullen Park if Wicklow progress.

The Leinster semi-final involving the winners of Wicklow/Louth v Wexford and the winners of Laois v Longford has been postponed to July 1, and will be played in conjunction with the Leinster hurling finals at GAA headquarters.

The Leinster CCC made those decisions at a meeting earlier this week, as the fixture alterations were neccessitated by the two replays between Wicklow and Louth. Wexford were originally due to face the first round winners at Croke Park this Sunday.

WICKLOW (SFC v Louth) - B Norman; C Hyland, D Power, A Byrne; JP Dalton, D O hAnnaidh, P Dalton; J Stafford, T Walsh; P Earls (capt), L Glynn, J Slattery; T Gill, D Jackman, T Hannon.
