Maurice Deegan will take charge of Saturday's All-Ireland club senior football championship semi-final between Nemo Rangers and Slaughtneil.

The Laois referee takes over the whistle from Wicklow' Anthony Nolan, who is unable to make the last four clash in Portlaoise after having endured an injury this week.

Originally from Stradbally, Deegan has refereed three All-Ireland SFC finals during his career, with his last being the 2016 replay between Dublin and Mayo.

Throw-in at O'Moore Park on Saturday is at 4.30pm.
