Mayo GAA U17 football manager Sean Deane has named the same team that defeated Galway in the Connacht GAA Minor Football Final last weekend for their crucial Electric Ireland Minor Football Championship Quarter-Final against Kildare this Sunday at 2:30pm in O'Connor Park in Tullamore.
Claremorris twins Dara and Niall Hurley are again named in attack with Dara set to start at centre-forward and man-of-the-match in the Connacht Final Niall named at corner-forward.
Goalkeeper David Dolan will have the same backs in front of him as in the Connacht Final with Rio Mortimer, John MacMonagle, Lorcan Silke, Liam Maloney, Colm McHale and Paul Gilmore all starting for the sixth game in a row.
The hard-working Jack Keane from Hollymount/Carramore and the industrious Luke Feeney from Ballina Stephenites have now formed a formable partnership in the middle of the field.
Up front wing-forwards James Maheady and Diarmuid Duffy flank Dara Hurley with Cathal Keaveney and Niall Hurley in the corners.
The attack is led by the deadly accurate Ronan Clarke from Bohola Moy Davitts at full-forward.
Referee appointed for the match is Barry Tiernan from Dublin.
The game will be broadcast on SportTG4 YouTube channel, with live commentary on Midwest Radio with Stephen Grealis and Nigel Reape.
