Tom Hyland will make his first start for the Offaly U20 footballers in this evening's Leinster final clash with Dublin in Portlaoise.

The Bracknagh clubman was a member of the Faithfuls' 2020 minor team which fell narrowly short to Meath in the provincial final last month. He is named at full-back as a replacement for injured captain Kieran Dolan.

Manager Declan Kelly has put faith in a number of last year's minors, with John Furlong once again starting at centre-back and Cormac Egan, their goalscorer against Westmeath seven days ago, selected at corner-forward.

Offaly (Leinster U20FC final v Dublin): Sean O'Toole; Fionn Dempsey, Tom Hyland, Lee Pearson; Rory Egan, John Furlong, Aaron Brazil; Ed Cullen, Morgan Tynan; Ciaran Egan, Cathal Flynn, Cathal Donoghue; Cormac Egan, Jack Bryant, Aaron Kellaghan.

Subs: Killian Kavanagh, Cathal Ryan, Brian Nolan, Oisin Keenan Martin, Gavin Young, Darragh Flynn, Mikey Cunningham, Keith O'Neill, Cormac Delaney.
