Eamonn Fitzmaurice will continue with his youth policy this weekend with David Clifford and Séan O'Shea two of the young guns named in the Kerry side to face Dubin this Sunday.

The rescheduled Division 1 clash will be played in Croke Park at 4pm on Sunday, with minor sensation Clifford set to face the All-Ireland champions for the first time.

Fitzmaurice has made three changes to the side that lost in Tralee to Galway, with Shane Murphy replacing Brian Kelly in goal, Adrian Spillane coming in at wing forward for Stephen O'Brien and corner forward Barry John Keane dropping to the bench in place of Kevin McCarthy.
