Derry manager John Brennan has named two championship debutants in his side to face Donegal in the quarter-final of the Ulster GAA Football Championship on Saturday evening.
Both John McCamley and Eugene Scullion will make their first championship starts in defence for a Derry side looking to unseat the reigning Ulster champions. McCamley is included at right corner back, while Scullion starts at left wing back.
Paddy Bradley captains the side from full forward and will make his 50th championship appearance for the Oak Leaf County, having missed all of last season through injury.
However, his brother Eoin has failed to overcome injury and is not in the line-up to face the Ulster champions. The Glenuillin forward was injured in a club match, which angered Oak Leaf boss John Brennan.
Derry (SF v Donegal): B Gillis; J McCamley, C McKaigue, SL McGoldrick; B McGoldrick, M Craig, E Scullion; J Diver, M Friel; G O’Kane, M Lynch, E Lynn; C Gilligan, P Bradley, E McGuckian.
The Donegal team has yet to be named with serious doubts hanging over both Michael Murphy and Rory Kavanagh.
Neil McGee will more than likely be marking Paddy Bradley on Saturday. The Donegal All Star is expecting an intense game…
