SEVEN PLAYERS WHO featured in last week’s meeting between Kerry and Cork at minor championship level, will face off in tomorrow night’s Munster U17 football championship final in Killarney.

With the minor grade switching to U17 next year, a special U17 championship has been organised this year for the players who will miss out in 2018.

Three players who featured for Kerry in last Wednesday’s Munster semi-final victory will start in goalkeeper Deividas Uosis, centre-back Eddie Horan and full-forward Michael Slattery – who came on as a substitute in that game.

Donal O’Sullivan, who started corner-forward for the Kerry minor side, misses out due to a hand injury suffered in that match.

Four Cork players who saw game time in that defeat in Páirc Uí Rinn, have been selected to start in Fitzgerald Stadium.

They are full-back Daniel O’Mahony, midfielder Mark Keane, wing-forward Jack Murphy and corner-forward Mark Cronin.
