CORK HAVE MADE four changes for Wednesday’s Electric Ireland Munster minor football semi-final against Kerry in Austin Stack Park in Tralee.

Tom Bushe and Shane Kingston are both back from injury after missing out their opening round success over Limerick. Their return at wing-back and centre-forward respectively is a boost to Cork as both were involved in last year’s minor team.

Elsewhere Mark White gets the nod to start in goal while Seamus Madigan comes in at left half-back. Positional changes see Kevin Dwyer and captain Sean Powter switch to the corner-back positions.

Chris Kelly, Conor Dennehy, Nathan Walsh and Conor Hughes all drop to the bench.
