Kildare Senior Hurling Manager, David Herity, and his Management Team have announced the team for Saturday’s Christy Ring Cup Semi-Final against Roscommon in St Conleth’s Park, Throw-in 1.30pm.
Herity makes two changes from the side that defeated Wicklow last time out with Cian Shanahan of Clane replacing Cathal Derivan in the full back like and the injured Jack Travers replaced by Tadhg Forde with the Maynooth man placed at right corner forward.
As well as the possibility of playing in a Christy Ring Cup Final there is an added bonus this year in that both Finalists will be promoted to the Joe McDonagh Cup for 2021 unlike when Kildare won in 2014 and 2018 when they were forced into a promotion play-off one week after the Final with expected consequences.
Kildare had a comfortable win over Roscommon when they met in the Allianz League earlier this year.
