Laois U-20 hurlers name team for Leinster championship quarter-final against Galway

Laois U-20 hurling manager Enda Lyons has named his side to take on Galway in the Leinster championship quarter-final in MW Hire O’Moore Park on Friday evening.

It shows three changes from the side that beat Carlow back on October 21 on the evening before Level 5 restrictions were introduced.

Into the team come Ciaran Burke (The Harps), John Maher (Rosenallis) and James Duggan (The Harps) with Conor Cosgrove (Rosenallis), James Duggan (The Harps) and Liam Delaney (Camross) making way.

There are also a number of positional switches with Enda Parlon moving from centre-back to full-back, Thep Fitzpatrick from midfield to wing-forward and Ciaran Byrne from corner-forward to wing-forward.

The game is in MW Hire O’Moore Park at 7.30pm but supporters are still not allowed to attend. The game will be shown live on TG4’s YouTube channel.

The winners of Friday’s game will take on Kilkenny in the semi-final on the following weekend with the final pencilled in for the first weekend in January.
