Evan Sheehan, man-of-the-match in that win over Clare in July as he scored 2-2, has been named at corner-forward after missing the semi-final win over Dublin due to injury.

Sheehan is joined in the full-forward line in the team announced tonight by Brian Turnbull, man-of-the-match against Dublin as he hit 0-13.

Turnbull was an injury doubt for the game after damaging a hamstring in a recent club game with Douglas but has been selected in this team by manager Denis Ring.

Brian Buckley drops to the bench as Sheehan returns with the rest of the starting side unchanged from the win over Dublin.

Cork will be captained by full-back Sean O’Leary-Hayes as they chase the county’s first All-Ireland minor hurling title win since 2001.
