Laois senior football team named for away trip to Westmeath

Laois footballers have named their team

Laois senior football manager John Sugrue has named his team to face Westmeath in Round 4 of Division 3 of the National Football League.

Following on from the win over Sligo two weeks ago, manager Sugrue has made two changes to the starting team.

Timahoe’s Damien O’Connor comes in for Graiguecullen’s Danny O’Reilly on the half forward line.

While The Heath’s Denis Booth is also in for his first appearance of the year at full back in place of Shane Nerney.

That means that Kevin Meaney keeps his place in midfield ahead of Kieran Lillis who has just returned from suspension.

LAOIS: Graham Brody; David Seale, Denis Booth, Gareth Dillon; Marty Scully, Stephen Attride, Colm Begley; John O’Loughlin, Kevin Meaney; Damien O’Connor, Donie Kingston, Conor Boyle; Paul Cahillane, Evan O’Carroll, Mark Barry

Laois face Westmeath in Mullingar at 2.30pm on Sunday where a win could move them top of the Division.

There are three other Division 3 games set to take place on the day.

Leaders Longford host Down at 2pm, bottom side Sligo travel to Louth at 2.30pm while Offaly face Carlow at 3pm.

This is the first of four Midlands Derbies for Laois. After this game, they face Longford, Offaly and Carlow in their remaining games.
