Meath manager Andy McEntee and his selectors have named a strong side for tomorrow's O'Byrne Cup final  against Westmeath.

The Royal County will use the game to put the finishing touches to their preparations for their upcoming Leinster SFC quarter-final against Longford which is scheduled to be played on Sunday, May 27.

With the exception of regular defender Mickey Burke being named in the half-forward line, there is a familiar look about the starting 15.

Newcomer Shane Glynn of Wolfe Tones has been handed the number four jersey while Sean Curran and Cian O'Brien have both recovered from long term injuries and have been named on the bench.

Throw-in at TEG Cusack Park is timed for 3pm.
