DUBLIN BOSS JIM GAVIN has made two changes to his team ahead of Sunday’s Leinster SFC final against Meath at Croke Park.

Gavin has stuck with the same defence and midfield that started the 16-point semi-final win over Wexford on 29 June. Goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton, once again, captains the side.

There are two personnel and two positional changes in the forwards as Paddy Andrews, Bernard Brogan and come in for Dean Rock and Paul Mannion. Alan Brogan drops back to the half forward line and Kevin McManamon moves from the right to the left side of the full forward line to accommodate Brogan the younger.

Meath named their team earlier today, with Mickey Newman the only change to the Royals’ starting line-up.


1. Stephen Cluxton (Parnells)

2. Philly McMahon (Ballymun Kickhams)
3. Rory O’Carroll (Kilmacud Crokes)
4. Jonny Cooper (Na Fianna)

5. James McCarthy (Ballymun Kickhams)
6. Nicky Devereux (Ballinteer St Johns)
7. Kevin Nolan (Kilmacud Crokes)
