THE Kerry senior team will be represented in the McGrath Cup on Sunday by a team drawn from the Under 21 panel.

Jack O’Connor and his management team will be in charge on the sideline at Austin Stack Park with an Under 21 selection which is very much along the same lines as the 2016 side.

The side are currently training for the Munster Under 21 championship that commences on March 8 with a home game against Clare.

Eleven of the team that started last year’s provincial final against Cork are eligible again in 2017 with the exceptions being Jack Savage, Dara Roche and  Eanna Ó Conchúir who are overage and Mark O’Connor who is over in Australia.

Expect Shane Ryan, Brian Ó Beaglaoich, Jason Foley, Matthew O’Flaherty, Andrew Barry Gavin White, Michéal Burns and Killian Spillane to make appearances.

The Kerry senior panel recommenced training on Tuesday night of this week. Kerry will be without players from  Dr Crokes, Kenmare and Glenbeigh-Glencar until their respective club championship campaigns have finished.

Dr Crokes have delayed announcing their choice as captain until their Club Championship campaign has been completed. Until then, Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice will appoint an interim captain.
