Team news

Lots of changes at the ranch, and I can’t help wondering: is the Sean Barron that the Blues signed for goalkeeping cover related to the Jamie Barron who played for the Under-21’s on Wednesday? Probably not, seeing as the older Barron plays for Fourmilewater.

I know, I’m such a tease. The team that lines out on Sunday is as follows:

Clinton Hennessy
Darragh Fives Wayne Hutchinson Noel Connors
Tony Browne Michael Walsh Kevin Moran
Shane O’Sullivan Richie Foley
Maurice Shanahan Stephen Molumphy Pauric Mahony
John Mullane Shane Walsh Brian O’Sullivan

Not that Davy Fitz would care, but it’s not far out of sync with the team I would have chosen if I were king. Declan Prendergast will likely be disappointed, but his lack of game time in the League surely did for his chances. And before you argue Tony Browne didn’t play much either, remember this – he’s Tony Browne. Pauric Mahony and Brian O’Sullivan, the latter fresh from a haul of 1-4 against Tipperary in the Under-21 match, will be well pleased with the vote of confidence, especially with Eoin Kelly lurking in the wings. The only selection I’m confused by is that of Stephen Molumphy at centre forward. I don’t think he spent a lot of time there in the spring, although reviewing previous reports it looks like he played there in the recent challenge against Kilkenny so this might not be just a flyer on the behalf of management. It’s a solid looking team, so it looks like I won’t be able to blame the management for getting it wrong. Ah well. There’s always switches.

    Molumphy wont be centre forward he will line out midfield and O’Sullivan will be centre forward.

    You might be right. Don’t tell Limerick though, it’s clearly Davy’s secret weapon!
