SEANIE JOHNSTON HAS not been included on Cavan’s panel for the McKenna Cup.

Manager Terry Hyland has named a 25-man panel for the pre-season tournament but there is no place for Johnston who is now back playing with Cavan Gaels.

The forward was at the heart of one of the biggest GAA transfer sagas when he switched his inter-county allegiance to Kildare.

But he was not able to nail down a regular place in two seasons with the Lilywhites and left Staplestown club St Kevin’s to return home earlier this year.

Kingscourt’s Philip Tinnelly is called up to the senior team for the first time and Redhills’ Packie Leddy, one of Cavan’s U21 stars in 2011, has also been included.

Cavan panel: Conor Gilsenan, Rory Dunne, Turloc Mooney, David Hyland, Alan Clarke, Niall Smith, Philip Tinnely, David Givney, Cian Mackey, Martin Reilly, Damien O’Reilly, Mark McKeever, Martin Dunne, Niall McDermott, Alan O’Mara, Joshua Hayes, Killian Brady, Marc Leddy, Fergal Flanagan, Declan McKiernan, Niall Murray, Packie Leddy, Eugene Keating, Kevin Tierney, Micheal Lyng.
