Brogan primed for challenge return

ALAN BROGAN will make his Dublin comeback against Galway on Sunday, in a senior football challenge to mark the opening of Skerries Harps' new clubhouse (2.0), writes Frank Roche.

The 2011 Footballer of the Year rejoined the Sky Blues squad in the past fortnight, and manager Jim Gavin today confirmed: "He's training very well; he has a lot of work done with his club, St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh. So he's in good shape and he will play a part on Sunday."

Speaking at a Gibson Hotel press conference ahead of the NFL final on Sunday week, Gavin added that Bernard Brogan and Rory O'Carroll are "back fully training on the field" and should be available for selection against Cork.
