Four changes for Roscommon's FBD League final against Galway
Kevin McStay’s Rossies will be aiming to regain the title they lost to the Tribesmen last season.

ROSCOMMON SENIOR FOOTBALL manager Kevin McStay has named a team that contains “a mix of experience and new faces” for Sunday’s meeting with Galway in the FBD League final in Kiltoom (2pm).

The team shows four personnel changes from last Sunday’s defeat to Mayo, as the Rossies aim to regain the title they lost to the Tribesmen last year. This will be the third consecutive FBD League final featuring Roscommon and Galway.

Darren O’Malley returns in goal at the expense of Colm Lavin. In defence, Sean McDermott is named at right corner back ahead of David Murray. Ultan Harney moves to full-forward so Sean Mullooly takes the number six jersey.

With Kevin Higgins dropping to the bench, Tom Corcoran moves from full-forward to midfield to partner Tadgh O’Rourke. The only other change sees Enda Smith selected at left half forward in place of Shane Killoran.
