LIMERICK HAVE NAMED their side to take on Kerry in Sunday’s Division 1B clash against Kerry at the Gaelic Grounds.

John Kiely has opted to make a host of changes from the side who surrendered a seven-point lead to Wexford in the league opener last Sunday.

Only six players are set to start in the same position they did against Davy Fitzgerald’s side, with Richie English, Colin Ryan, John Fitzgibbon,  Tom Morrissey and Ronan Lynch all promoted to the starting lineup.

Experienced defender Seamus Hickey swaps with Declan Hannon from wing-back to centre-back, with Hannon moving in the opposite direction. Cian Lynch switches to full-forward while David Dempsey moves to 11.

Mike Casey, Diarmaid Byrnes, Paul Browne, Gearoid Hegarty, Peter Casey and Graeme Mulcahy drop to the bench.

Meanwhile, Kerry are unchanged from their impressive win over Laois last weekend.

The Kingdom had the perfect start to their Division 1B campaign with Colum Harty and Padraig Boyle both in fine form.
