It's all change for Kerry with manager Jack O'Connor naming just five of last year's All-Ireland final starting 15 for their Division One League opener against Donegal in Ballybofey on Sunday.
O'Connor has a weakened deck to pick from with the Clifford brothers, David and Paudie, taking a well-earned break after their All-Ireland junior club final success with Fossa while veteran midfielder David Moran retired earlier this week.
The same full-back line that started last year's decider is still in place with Graham O'Sullivan, Jason Foley and Tom O'Sullivan in situ while Tadhg Morley skippers the side from centre-back and Jack Barry starts at midfield.
There are plenty of chances thrown out by O'Connor with Shane Murphy getting the nod between the posts in the absence of All-Star Shane Ryan while Paul Murphy, fresh from All-Ireland intermediate glory with Rathmore, and Mike Breen fill the wing-back slots.
Barry O'Sullivan completes the midfield pairing but the real changes are up front with Seán O'Shea a noticeable absentee as a fresh half-forward line is made up by Micheál Burns, Dara Moynihan and Adrian Spillane.
Tony Brosnan, Darragh Roche and Killian Spillane fill the inside berths and get a chance to impress but O'Connor's inexperienced side, and a threadbare bench, bares little comparison to the team which romped to League honours last season before claiming Munster and All-Ireland crowns.
That new-look selection is likely to give Paddy Carr's Donegal side - playing their first high-profile tie since the retirement of the mercurial Michael Murphy - plenty of hope of victory on home soil.
KERRY (SF v Donegal): S Murphy; G O'Sullivan, J Foley, T O'Sullivan, M Breen, T Morley, P Murphy; J Barry, B O'Sullivan; M Burns, D Moynihan, A Spillane; T Brosnan, D Roche, K Spillane.
