DERRY manager Damian McErlain has named his side for Sunday’s All-Ireland MFC semi-final with Dublin (BOX-IT Athletic Grounds 5.30pm)
The side shows no change from their 1-13 to 0-4 win over reigning champions Galway in the quarter-final.
Both teams are unbeaten in this year’s championship, but Derry needed extra-time and penalties in their dramatic Ulster final win over Monaghan.
Derry are bidding for a sixth All-Ireland title, with their most recent success coming when the 2020 campaign concluded in July 2021 with victory over Kerry.
Dublin have to go back to 2012 for their last – and eleventh – minor All-Ireland when current senior stars Cormac Costello and Niall Scully helped shoot them to victory.
Derry: Jack McCloy; Fionn McEldowney, Finbar Murray, Luke Grant; Cahir Spiers, James Sargent, Cahal Odhran Campbell; McKaigue, Tommy Rogers; Eamon Young, Ger Dillon, Johnny McGuckian; Rory Small, Conall Higgins, Oisín Doherty
Subs: Karl Campbell, John Boyle, Darach McGonigle, Dara McGuckin, Caolan Higgins, Deaglán McNamee, Kevin B Mullan, Lee O’Neill, Gabhan McIvor, Dylan Rocks, Patrick Birt, Rory McGonigle, Charlie Mulholland, Caomhin McNally, Faolan McNicholl, Fintan McIvor, Finbar McShane, Zack Gavigan, Jude Mulholland
