New Westmeath manager Colin Kelly has revealed his starting 15 for tomorrow afternoon's O'Byrne Cup opener against Laois in Mullingar.

Unsurprisingly, none of the St Loman's players involved in the Westmeath champions' recent Leinster club SFC final defeat to Moorefield have been named in the 23-man squad for tomorrow.

Kieran Martin leads the Lake County's attack from full-forward in John Heslin's absence and is flanked by fellow Maryland clubman Callum McCormack and Athlone's John Egan.

Alan Stone and Denis Corroon start alongside each other at centre-field while Gareth Carr and Sam Duncan are named at centre-back and full-back respectively.

Throw-in at TEG Cusack Park is at 2pm.

Westmeath (O'Byrne Cup v Laois): Eoin Carberry; John Rock, Sam Duncan, Mark McCallon; James Dolan, Gareth Carr, Noel Mulligan; Alan Stone, Denis Corroon; Ger Leech, Luke Loughlin, Nigel Scally; Callum McCormack, Kieran Martin, John Egan
