Murnin returns to Armagh attack for Galway clash

ANDREW Murnin has returned to the Armagh forward line for this weekend’s top of the table clash with Galway. Murnin missed out through injury the last day when Armagh hammered Derry by 11-points.

He comes into the attacking unit, holding his usual position at full forward, while Ciaran Higgins also nabs a starting jersey. Higgins replaces the suspended Connaire Mackin while Stefan Campbell has dropped to the bench.

Higgins’ last championship appearance came against Galway last season when Armagh won by one-point. The Maghery defender has only played once this year, against Louth in the first round of the league.

Niall Grimley has retained his place at midfield having given an outstanding performance against Derry. The Madden will partner Ben Crealey in midfield, with Rian O’Neill pushing into the half forward line.

Armagh: B Hughes, B McCambridge, A McKay P McGrane, C Higgins, T Kelly, A Forker, N Grimley, B Crealey, J McElory, R O’Neill, O Conaty, R Grugan, A Murnin, C Turbitt.

Subs: E Rafferty, P Burns, G McCabe, R McQuillan, D McMullan, S McPartlan, O O’Neill, J Duffy, A Nugent, S Campbell, J Burns.
