Armagh's Aaron Kernan
Armagh have received a huge boost ahead of their Allianz NFL Round 3 fixture versus Longford with the return of the Crossmaglen contingent.
Aaron Kernan and Jamie Clarke are drafted straight into the starting line-up.
Kernan, along with Brendan Donaghy and Ciaran McKeever form a strong half back line while Clarke is picked at corner forward.
Injuries have ruled out last weekend's hat-trick hero Gavin McParland, Declan Carville, Anto Duffy and Paul McKeown.
The U21 players have been excused until the end of the U21 championship.
