PETER CROWLEY WILL this weekend make his first start for Kerry since tearing his cruciate ligament last year. 

Crowley has been named by Peter Keane in the Kerry team to face Monaghan in the restarted Allianz National League this weekend. 

Ronan Buckley, a county champion with East Kerry, makes his senior debut in a youthful forward line featuring Sean O’Shea, captain David Clifford and Crokes duo Tony Brosnan and Micheál Burns. 

Elsewhere this evening, James Horan has handed debuts to David McBrien and Mark Moran in the league meeting with Galway at Tuam.

Cillian O’Connor will start his 90th game in league and championship for Mayo against their near rivals, with Aidan O’Shea named at full forward. 

Galway are top of Division One with two games remaining, a point clear of Kerry. Monaghan and Mayo, meanwhile, are battling to avoid relegation, with Monaghan two points and once place better off than second-bottom Mayo.
