Galway have handed debuts to four players in their Connacht SFC clash with London on Sunday.
Former Kildare senior James Kavanagh and Michael Lundy and Eddie Hoare start in the forwards and Paul Varley makes his Connacht debut at wing-back.
With captain Paul Conroy out injured Galway will be captained by Gary O'Donnell who has made the centre-back spot his own this year.
London have not yet named their side but the Exiles, who made history by beating Sligo and Leitrim to reach the Connacht final last year, are expected to feature two Galwaymen.
Mark Gottsche has been a London mainstay for several years but former Tribes goalkeeper Adrian Faherty, who once worked for current Galway manager Alan Mulholland, is also expected to line out for the Exiles.
