Alan's 2015 Dublin debut could be next Sunday, Bernard to be fit for league final

Dubs manager Jim Gavin has given the latest news on the Brogan brothers.

DUBLIN FANS COULD get a chance to see Alan Brogan in action for the first time in 2015 next Sunday afternoon.

Brogan rejoined the Dublin panel last week after plenty speculation about his inter-county future in the wake of last year’s All-Ireland semi-final loss to Donegal.

He wasn’t involved in yesterday’s league semi-final win over Monaghan – which sets Dublin up for a final meeting with Cork on 26 April – but manager Jim Gavin agrees that Brogan could play in a challenge game next Sunday against Galway in the Skerries Harps club.

On Saturday night, Brogan was in excellent form at club level as St Oliver Plunkett’s Eoghan-Ruadh saw off Raheny 5-11 to 1-8 in Division 1 of the Dublin football league.

“We’ll have a look at it,” outlined Gavin. “There’ll be a few tired bodies, and we’ll pick a team accordingly for that game. The game is against Galway.

“He (Alan) would have played with his club Oliver Plunketts last night so he’s match fit in those terms. He just needs to be reintroduced to the squad. That’ll take him a few weeks to get through that process.”

Gavin also revealed that Bernard Brogan and Rory O’Carroll will be back fit for the league decider against Cork. Both players had been selected for yesterday’s game but were ruled out due to ‘soft-tissue injuries’ before throw-in.
