Following an opening round defeat to Wexford in Chadiwck’s Weford Park last weekend, Kilkenny under 20 manager Mark Dowling has been able to call on the services of some of this year’s senior players for Saturday’s clash with Galway.
Following a top performance across the National Hurling League, Galmoy’s Billy Drennan has been named to start at corner forward with goal-hungry Gearóid Dunne named in the half-forward line. Dicksboro duo Timmy Clifford and Niall Rowe are also included having featured for Derek Lyng already this season.
Glenisk O’Connor Park in Tullmore provides the backdrop for the ONeills.com Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship meeting of Kilkenny and Galway in what should be a cracker of a game and you can follow it all on KCLR and Scoreline from 2pm today.
