Sean McCormack returns to the Longford team for the Division 3 football final clash with Wexford.
The ace attacker missed the midlanders’ last two league matches through injury and was rated doubtful for the final against Wexford, but manager Glenn Ryan has named him at full forward for Saturday evening’s Croke Park showdown, with James McGivney making way.
However, David Barden misses out due to ankle ligament damage, with McCormack’s younger brother Padraig retaining the No.10 shirt.
In total, there are six changes from the team that beat the Model County at Pearse Park in the dead rubber three weeks ago.
Wexford meanwhile have made nine changes to their starting XV.
Manager Jason Ryan has recalled all his big guns for Saturday’s showdown, with Rob Tierney and Adrian Flynn returning in defence, Andrew Shore and Daithi Waters back in the engine room and Redmond Barry, Ben Brosnan, Colm Morris, Eric Bradley and PJ Banville all selected in attack.
Ciaran Lyng is the only forward to start both games against Longford.
