David Clifford will captain Kerry on Sunday as the Kingdom go in search of their fourth consecutive All-Ireland Minor Football Championship when they take on Derry at Croke Park.

Dr Crokes' Jack Griffin comes in at full forward in place of Donnchadh O’Sullivan in what is Peter Keane's only change from the Kerry side that defeated Cavan in the semi-final.

The team contains just four players from the side who played in the All Ireland Minor Final last year – Michael Potts, Diarmuid O’Connor, Brian Friel and Clifford, who has blazed his way through this year's competition with an incredible personal tally of 4-37.
