DUBLIN have made one enforced change ahead of their EirGrid Leinster U21FC Final against Kildare in Páirc Tailteann, Navan tomorrow evening (7.30).

With Killian O’Gara hors de combat following his ankle injury suffered playing for Templeogue Synge Street, manager Dessie Farrell has drafted in Cormac Costello into the full-forward line.

The line-up includes four players that won a provincial minor title last year with Eoin Murchan, Andrew Foley, Shane Clayton and Colm Basquel rewarded for their impressive displays to date with starting berths. Dublin will be captained by David Byrne, with the Nh Olaf player having led the Dubs to Leinster and All-Ireland glory at the corresponding minor age group back in 2012.  

DUBLIN (u21fc v Kildare): L Molloy; S Clayton, D Byrne, R McGowan; E Lowndes, C

Mullally, E Murchan; Stephen Cunningham, S Carthy; G Burke, A Foley, N Scully; C Costello, C McHugh, C Basquel.
