LAST YEAR’S MINOR attacking star Aaron Shanagher will make his first league start for the Clare senior side tomorrow as they travel to face Wexford in Division 1B of the Allianz hurling league.

Shanagher is selected at right corner-forward after coming on as a sub and hitting the net against Offaly last Sunday.

A minor for the Banner in 2015, Shanagher was also in excellent form for his club Wolfe Tones as they won Clare and Munster intermediate hurling crowns.

His introduction is one of three changes from the win over the Faithful with Jack Browne coming in at wing-back while Gearoid O’Connell starts at half-forward.

There has been a vacancy left in the other wing-forward position until before the game in Innovate Wexford Park.

Clare are without the suspended Peter Duggan while from last week’s starting fifteen, there were injury concerns over Colm Galvin, John Conlon and Darach Honan.
