Kingston is handed pivotal role for Laois

DONIE Kingston has been named at centre-forward in the Laois side to take on Louth this Sunday, writes Conor McKeon.

The rumour mill in Laois had been rife that Kingston had again walked away from the county set-up after failing to start several of their League matches in Division 2.

His status in the squad was subsequently reaffirmed and Justin McNulty has thrown Kingston straight back into the team in the pivotal number 11 jersey for Sunday.

LAOIS (SF): E Culliton; M Timmons, D Booth, P O'Leary; D Strong, J O'Loughlin, P McMahon; C Boyle, B Quigley; R Munnelly, D Kingston, C Begley; D O'Connor, G Walsh, C Kelly.
