THE KERRY MINOR team to take on Clare in their Electric Ireland Munster championship opener tomorrow night shows four survivors from last September’s All-Ireland triumph.

Michael Potts, Diarmuid O’Connor, Brian Friel and highly-rated prospect David Clifford all played key roles last year and the Kingdom will look to their experience for the clash at Austin Stack Park.

The team for the quarter-final also includes four members of the St Brendan’s College Hogan Cup winning side earlier this month.

Potts, along with Chris O’Donoghue, Sean O’Leary and Donnchadh O’Sullivan were part of the team that retained the post primary schools competition at Croke Park.

Tralee IT student Clifford, who has taken part in AFL trials in the past, captains the side from full-forward.
