Antrim draft in McManus

02 March 2007
Last year’s minor captain and star of Cushendall’s run to the All-Ireland club semi-final, Neil McManus, has been drafted into the Antrim side to face Dublin in Casement Park.

It will be McManus’s debut in Saffron jersey and he replaces Michael Herron from the loss to Galway.

Despite the heavy nature of the defeat to the tribesmen two weeks ago, there are only two further changes to the side Kieran Kelly and Kevin Elliot coming into the defence at the expense of James McKeigue and Ciaran Herron.

Antrim (NHL v Dublin) - DD Quinn; B McAuley, K Kelly, S Delargy; M Molloy, J Campbell, K Elliott; K McKeegan, B Herron; L Watson, N McManus, K Stewart, P Richmond, N McAuley, P Shields.
