Club All-Star starting team revealed

The Club All-Star team that will line out in Saturday’s charity game has been announced and it’s a fairly strong line up.

For numerous reasons, a number of the Club All-Stars are unavailable, but their spots have been filled.

The Cullyhanna contingent have Sunday’s Ulster final to worry about, so those four players won’t feature.

Cullyhanna clubman Ciaran McKeever will be on the line, however. He manages the Club All-Star side along with Denis Hollywood and Julie Davis.

A number of the players involved for the Club All-Star team are on the way back from injury and will enjoy seeing some game time.

Team selection

Goalkeeper Bobby McKerr was instrumental in Clann Eireann IIs winning the Junior Championship crown.

He pulled off two huge saves in the final against Ballyhegan as they ran out comfortable winners in the end.

His clubmate Sean McCarthy won a Senior Championship with the Lurgan side in 2021. McCarthy will line out at full back.

Michael McConville will be in one corner while Armagh stalwart Mark Shields will be in the other corner.

Connaire Mackin, who helped Shane O’Neill’s win the Intermediate Championship last season, starts at wing back.

Belleek’s Callum O’Neill lines out at centre half back, flanked by Grange clubman Justin Kieran.

In midfield, the top scorer in the Senior Championship Shane McPartlan partners Madden man Niall Grimley.
