Armagh announce line up for Louth clash

Kieran McGeeney has named a strong starting line up to take on Louth in Saturday’s Division Two league opener.

Although some big players, like the O’Neill brothers Oisin and Rian along with Andrew Murnin have been omitted, there’s still plenty of notable names right throughout the team.

Ross McQuillan and Aidan Nugent of Cullyhanna won’t feature, although their clubmate Jason Duffy has been named among the subs.

Youngsters Peter McGrane and Oisin Conaty both earn their first league starts, although Conaty did feature in the championship last season.

Blaine Hughes is back between the sticks in the absence of Ethan Rafferty while experienced heads Aidan Forker, Rory Grugan and Stefan Campbell are in from the start.

Armagh: Blaine Hughes, Paddy Burns, Ciaran Higgins, Peter McGrane, Barry McCambridge, Greg McCabe, Aidan Forker, Ben Crealey, Ciaran Mackin, Conor O’Neill, Rory Grugan, Joe McElroy, Stefan Campbell, Conor Turbitt, Oisin Conaty. Subs: Shea Magill, Connaire Mackin, Jemar Hall, Shane McPartlan, Oisin O’Neill, Tiernan Kelly, Cian McConville, Jarly Og Burns, Niall Grimley, Darragh McMullan, Jason Duffy.
