The retired Armagh trio will be in Sunderland to see what life is like at the Stadium of Light under Gus Poyet for TV programme Trading Places where guests have to swap roles for a week.

Kernan, who announced his retirement at 30 late last year, has been working as a GAA pundit with Setanta Sports and will discuss Armagh matters in Sunderland as the club’s Chief Executive, Margaret Burns, is from his neighbouring parish of Dromintee.

Bentley will be working at Kernan Property Services LTD for the week he's in Armagh while Kernan will also have to attempt to sell houses in the North East of England.
