THE Kerry team to face Tipperary in the EirGrid Munster GAA Under 21 Football Championship on Wednesday has been named and features players from clubs in and around Tralee.
Jack Savage of Kerins O’Rahillys captains the side and plays at corner-forward. He is joined on the field by Churchill’s Eoghan O’Brien in goal, Na Gaeil’s Andrew Barry at centre half back and Greg Horan of Austin Stacks in midfield.
Ardfert’s Brandon Barrett will also be aiming to impress in the half forward line for this Round 1 game which will mark the first fixture under the new floodlighting system in Austin Stack Park (throw-in 7.30pm).
The team contains just four of the side defeated by Cork in last year’s Round 1 game – Brian Ó Beagaloich, Cathal Ó Lúing, Micheál Burns and Jack Savage. Nine of the side won All Ireland Minor Medal in either 2014 or 2015 are included.
