McIver makes two changes for Derry’s league final


Mark Lynch has returned following a hand injury

Brian McIver has made just two changes to the Derry team that beat Westmeath in the last round of the league for this weekend’s National League Division two final.

Mark Lynch returns following a hand injury that forced him to miss the last two games of the league, and Michael Bateson drops to the bench. Up front, Benny Heron is included in the forward line at the expense of Lee Kennedy.

Derry will be hoping for a repeat of the 2-17 to 1-5 victory they had  over the lake county. However, Pat Flanagan is expected to play a much stronger side this weekend.

Derry (v Westmeath): Eoin McNicholl (Glenullin); Aidan McAlynn (Loup), Chrissy McKaigue (Slaughtneil), Gerard O’Kane (Glenullin); Charlie Kielt (Kilrea), Mark Lynch (Banagher) (capt), Sean Leo McGoldrick (Eoghan Rua); Patsy Bradley (Slaughtneil), Ryan Bell (Ballinderry); Daniel Heavron (Magherafelt), James Kielt (Kilrea), Enda Lynn (Greenlough); Benny Heron (Ballinascreen), Eoin Bradley (Glenullin), Raymond Wilkinson (Ballinderry)
