Spiers gets call

Rookie goalkeeper Colm Spiers will make his championship debut in Sunday's All-Ireland MFC final against Cork.

Spiers has been thrust into the limelight due to a foot injury, which has ruled out regular 'keeper Mark McReynolds.

Cork have made four changes to their starting 15, with defenders Kevin Fulignati and Conor O'Sullivan and forwards Dan MacEoin and Tom Hegarty drafted in.

Tyrone (mf v Cork) -- C Spiers; S McGarrity, C Clarke, HP McGeary; N Sludden, M Donaghy, E Deeney; H Og Conlon, C Grugan; R Donnelly, T Canavan, R Devlin; S Tierney, J McCullagh, R O'Neill.

CORK -- D Hanrahan; K Fulignati, M O'Shea, A Cronin (Capt); C O'Sullivan, T Clancy, J Wall; J Burns, D Cahalane; J O'Rourke, M Sugrue, D MacEoin; K Hallissey, T Hegarty, B Hurley.
