Derry team named ahead of Christy Ring clash

By Michael McMullan

DERRY have named their side ahead of Sunday’s Christy Ring Cup final showdown with Kildare in Croke Park (2.15pm)

Mark Craig and Niall Farren return from the side that saw off Sligo in their final game of the group stages.

Swatragh duo James Friel and Sean Francis Quinn miss out, with the latter getting valuable minutes against Sligo on his return from injury.

The Oakleafers are still bidding for a first title and will hope to make up for 12 months ago when a slow start left them playing catchup with Meath in a two-point defeat at Headquarters.

Derry: Oisin O’Doherty, Paddy Kelly, Mark Craig, Niall Farren, Sean Cassidy, Richie Mullan, Meehaul McGrath, Callum O’Kane, Corey O’Reilly, Darragh McGilligan, Cormac O’Doherty, Cahal Murray, John Mullan, Christy McNaughton, Ruairí Ó Mianáin

Subs: Eoin Mulholland, Thomas Brady, Aimon Duffin, Sean Francis Quinn, Eamon Conway, James Friel, Paul Cleary, Sean Kelly, Padhraig Nelis, Dara Mooney, Jack Cassidy
