New Kerry manager Peter Keane has named his team for this Sunday's league opener against Tyrone in Killarney.

The starting side has a number of familiar faces included in it but Keane has selected a number of players on the bench who are poised for their senior debut, while All-Ireland winner Tommy Walsh is also set for his first Kerry appearance since 2015.

Paul Geaney and James O'Donoghue are both named in the full forward line while Paul Murphy captains the team at centre back.

Among the exciting prospects named among the replacements are Diarmuid O'Connor of Na Gaeil and Dara Moynihan from Spa.
