Laois manager Peter Creedon has made 10 changes to his side for Wednesday’s trip to Greystones to play Wicklow in the O’Byrne Cup.
Having used a number of the U-21 squad in Sunday’s win over DIT, Creedon has selected a more experienced outfit this time with none of the U-21s included.
Alan Farrell, Colm Begley, Kevin Meaney and Ambrose Doran all remain in the same positions they played in on Sunday while Donie Kingston moves from corner-forward to partner Meaney in midfield.
Portlaoise duo Kieran Lillis and Gareth Dillon come into the full-back line where they will be joined by Timahoe’s Ciaran Lennon.
Lennon and Mountmellick’s Eoghan Keogh are two of the lesser experienced players to be selected.
Wednesday’s fixture continues a busy spell of games for Laois teams as the U-21s and seniors are both in action again on Saturday. The seniors play Meath in Stradbally at 7pm while earlier in the day in the Laois GAA Training Centre, Gary Kavanagh’s U-21 side play Tipperary at 2pm.
The Laois hurlers, meanwhile, face DIT next Sunday at 2pm in Rathdowney.
