GALWAY HAVE NAMED their team for Friday’s Connacht U21 football championship clash with holders Roscommon in Kiltoom.

Three senior players are included in the Tribesmen’s side with Enda Tierney, Eamonn Brannigan and Paul Mannion all set to start the game.

The trio have all featured in Galway’s recent Allianz League campaign and will bolster the away side as they look to avenge last year’s defeat to Roscommon in the final.

Oughterard’s half-back Tierney captains the side.

The two counties have won the last six Connacht U21 provincial titles between them and they served up a classic 12 months ago in Tuam with the Rossies coming out 3-14 to 3-11 winners.

Throw-in on Friday is at 7.30pm.
