The Irish News - May 14 2010: No room for Kielt in Derry line-up

J AMES Kielt is a surprise omission from Damian Cassidy's selection for Sunday's Ulster SFC opener against Armagh at Celtic Park.

In all, the Derry team shows four changes from the side which claimed a morale-boosting win over Galway in their final League game in Pearse Stadium.

Raymond Wilkinson replaces Kielt in the forwards while Joe Diver also drops to the bench. Eoin and Paddy Bradley return from injury and Mark Lynch switches to centre-forward.

Both Charlie Kielt and Michael McGoldrick are ruled out through injury so Kevin McGuckin comes in at fullback with Michael Bateson replacing Charlie Kielt at right half-back.

Bateson and Declan Mullan will make their Championship debuts on Sunday.

Veteran Enda Muldoon, the only survivor from the 1998 Ulster Championship-winning side, returns to the squad and is listed among the substitutes.

As expected, Ronan Clarke is not named in Armagh's starting 15 for the clash at Celtic Park.

The Pearse Og clubman aggravated an achilles injury prior to the National League final and was forced to miss the Orchard county's 0-17 to 1-12 win over Down in Croke Park.

He is included among the substitutes, however.

Paddy O'Rourke also re-jigged his starting team and has made one change in personnel from the team which beat Down last month. Kieran Toner is named at full-back with Brendan Donaghy moving to number four.

BT D'Alton Cup final: St Patrick's, Cavan 3-9 Abbey CBS Newry 0-4

St Patrick's, Cavan will be celebrating a first ever BT D'Alton Cup title for a while after seeing off the challenge of Abbey CBS in the final in Pearse Og grounds Armagh yesterday afternoon.

After running up big scores in the lead up to the final, defences took over and there was little to separate the sides after 20 minutes, Cavan ahead by 0-2 to a single score from Ryan Treanor.

However, the Breffni boys conjured up a 21st minute goal for Ben Conaty and quickly added two Ryan Connolly points to open up a gap that the Abbey struggled to close.

Cavan led by 1-5 to 0-1 at the break, but Abbey hit back on the re-start with three points in succession.

This closed the gap, but Ryan Connolly struck a goal and this helped Cavan regain control.

Ronan O'Reilly added a third Cavan goal and substitute Donovan McCaffrey struck two points in the final 10 minutes to confirm an historic victory for St Patrick's.

St Patrick's Cavan: M Fegan; G Brady, J Rahill, D Lunney; C McManus,TGalligan, P Sexton; C McCabe,MMcKenna (0-1); R O'Reilly (1-2), R Connolly (1-4), P Smith; B Sheanon, B Conaty (1-0), D Gannon.
