KILDARE manager Colin Ward has made one change to his team ahead of Saturday’s Leinster Minor Football Final against Dublin in Pairc Tailteann, Navan (throw in 2pm).

PJ Cullen was introduced as a first half substitute in place of Ryan Comeau during the semi-final win over Laois and the St Laurences man is now named to start at wing back.

The game will be will Kildare’s sixth Leinster minor final in seven years and Kildare have won three of those previous final – 2013, 2015 and 2016 – but lost out in last year’s final to Meath. It’s the seventh final meeting between the counties at this grade and although Kildare have enjoyed some success against Dublin, they haven’t actually won a final against Saturday’s opponents since 1991, losing most recently in 2014 and after a replay in 2009.
