Kelly Names Much Changed Side Ahead Of Down Contest

The Offaly seniors are heading to Croke Park after this weekend's dead rubber fifth round.

Offaly head into their last group phase game of the Joe McDonagh Cup with a place in the final already secured.

Johnny Kelly's side are in Ballycran to take on a Down side coached by former county championship winner with Shinrone, Trevor Fletcher.

The Faithful manager has named a much changed team with the Under 20s dropping off the panel ahead of their All Ireland Final next weekend:

The Mourne men have had an inconsistent campaign with a big win over Meath on the opening round followed by a diappointing loss to Kerry next time out.

Down nearly pulled off one of the shocks of the competition, leading Westmeath in the closing stages, only for Joe Fortune's side to rescue a draw.

Since losing to Laois on the opening weekend, Offaly have won their way through to the championship decider.

Throw in at McKenna Park is set for 1pm tomorrow.
