New Cavan senior boss Terry Hyland wasted no time in making changes to his senior panel, releasing six players last week and calling up six more.
Michael Brennan, Sean McCormack, Ciaran Galligan, Declan Meehan, Colm Courtney and James McDonald have all parted company with the panel as the new manager seeks to get plans in place for the Donegal clash in Kingspan Breffni Park on May 20.
And experienced defender John McCutcheon, who left the panel in early February after receiving no game time under Val Andrews, has been recalled along with five members of the successful Ulster U21-winning team, namely Jason McLoughlin, Jack Brady, Killian Clarke, Feargal Flanagan and Kevin Tierney.
Tierney scored 3-18 in four matches for the U21s while defender Clarke was Cavan’s man of the match in the 2011 Ulster MFC final and this year’s provincial U21 decider.
