Adrian Marren and David Kelly named to start for Sligo against Galway

Sligo have beaten Galway in two of their past three meetings.

SLIGO CAPTAIN Adrian Marren has been named to start at full forward for Sligo against Galway this Saturday evening.

Marren has been struggling with an ankle injury this year, but he returns to face the team he bagged 2-6 against the last time the side’s met in 2012.

Marren is partnered inside with David Kelly and Pat Hughes, with Hughes likely to come out the field and leave room inside for Marren and Kelly to exploit.

Pat Flanagan has made four changes to the team knocked out of last summer’s championship by Derry; bringing in David Rooney, Keelan Cawley and Johnny Martyn and Aidan Devaney. Three of which are graduates of this year’s Connacht winning junior team.

Devaney is the team’s only championship debutant as he starts between the sticks.

Throw in at Markievicz Park is at 7.00pm.

2. Ross Donovan (Eastern Harps)

Much the same for Offaly as they name their team for the trip to Aughrim
