Kerry manager Peter Keane has made seven changes to the team that was beaten by Mayo in the league final for the Kingdom's championship opener against Clare.

Kerry travel to Ennis to face the Banner on Saturday night in what is Keane's first championship game in charge, and he has restored a number of familiar faces to his team after the defeat to Mayo in late March.

In defence, Jason Foley and Tadhg Morley return to the fullback line, while Shane Enright comes in at wing-back. David Moran and Adrian Spillane are included in midfield, while in attack, Paul Geaney and James O'Donoghue are restored.

The game throws in at 7pm in Cusack Park.
