Four senior panellists named on Galway U20 side while Laois also show hand for quarter-final clash

GALWAY AND LAOIS have named the teams that will face each other in the quarter-final of the U20 Leinster hurling championship tomorrow at O’Moore Park [throw-in, 7.30pm].

There are four members of the Galway senior panel included on the side that will take to the field.

Darach Fahy has been named to start in goals while TJ Brennan slots into full-back with Diarmuid Kilcommins on the half-back line.

Conor Walsh has been named to start at half-forward.

There are also two members of the minor side that captured the 2019 All-Ireland title included in the team, with Ian McGlynn pairing up with Alex Connaire at midfield.

The Laois team includes three changes from the side that defeated Carlow in October, before the competition was stalled due to Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions.

Ciaran Burke, John Maher, and James Duggan all come into the side to replace Conor Cosgrove, James Duggan and Liam Delaney all making way.

The winners of Friday’s game will face Kilkenny in the semi-final.
