KERRY BOSS JACK O’Connor has made two changes for tomorrow night’s EirGrid Munster U20 football semi-final against Waterford after last week’s rout of Limerick at the quarter-final stage.

All-Ireland winning manager O’Connor brings Brian Lonergan into goal and introduces Cian Gammell, a two-time All-Ireland victor in Croke Park last year with the Kerry minor side and St Brendan’s Killarney, to the defence at wing-back. Deividas Uosis and Graham O’Sullivan are the players to make way.

Waterford have also named their side for their opening game of the 2018 campaign but face an onerous task as they travel to Austin Stack Park in Tralee.

Kerry clocked up 1-30 in their demolition of Limerick last week in Newcastlewest with David Shaw, Fiachra Clifford and Donal O’Sullivan leading the way in the scoring stakes.

They’ll be warm favourites to progress to the final on Friday 29 June.
