Armagh squad named for League Opener

Kieran McGeeney has named his team for the opening game in this year’s Allianz League match against Tipperary. Annaghmore’s Matthew McNeice will make his National League debut in goals. The full back line sees seasoned defenders Finnian Moriarty and Charlie Vernon alongside Michael Murray who impressed during Armagh’s McKenna Cup campaign. Mark Shields starts at 5 alonside team captain Ciaran McKeever at centre half back. Armagh Harps’ man Declan McKenna completes the half back line. The midfield pairing of Aaron Findon and Stefan Campbell will start the Tipperary game and the half forward line consists of Eugene McVerry, the Grange’s Miceal McKenna and Aidan Forker. The full forward line sees Crossmaglen pairing Tony Kernan and Jamie Clarke either side of full forward Caolán Rafferty. Ádh mór ar Chiarán agus ar fhoireann Ard Mhacha sa chéad chluiche den tsraith náisiúnta. We wish Kieran and the Armagh boys the very best of luck against Tipperary on Sunday. Make sure you join us in the Athletic Grounds on Sunday to cheer on the boys. Tickets are available online at http://www.gaa.tickets.ie or can be bought on the day. Gates open at 1pm and patrons are advised to arrive early. Ard Mhacha abú.
