Ryan gets starting slot in Dubs team

PHILLY RYAN has been handed his first Allianz Football League start by Dublin boss Jim Gavin for tomorrow's Division One clash with Kerry in Killarney.

The St Brigid's clubman came off the bench during last weekend's opening round win over Cork and is now included from the start for Paul Mannion, whose own NFL debut against the Rebels was ended early by a bout of concussion.

The All-Ireland Under-21 medal winner's call-up signifies Dublin's only change in personnel.

DUBLIN (SF v Kerry): S Cluxton; J Cooper, R O'Carroll, K O'Brien; D Daly, G Brennan, J McCaffrey; MD Macauley, E ó Conghaile; P Flynn, D Connolly, P Quinn; P Ryan, P Andrews, B Brogan.
