Wexford boss JJ Doyle has put together a team for tonight's Leinster IHC final clash against Kilkenny.

As revealed yesterday, Doyle, who works alongside Davy Fitzgerald in the county senior set-up, was “not in a position to field a team" due to player refusals, withdrawals and unavailablity among other reasons.

However, the three-time Leinster U21 winning boss with Wexford, has managed to assemble a 24-man squad for the Nowlan Park fixture with thirteen clubs from across the intermediate and junior grades represented.

Former county senior goalkeeper Niall Breen, who plays with junior side Tara Rocks, is named at centre-back while the Ffrench brothers, Lorcan and Tony, from Adamstown, line out in midfield and attack respectively.

Wexford (Leinster IHC final v Kilkenny): Luke Murphy; Garrett Foley, Shane O'Gorman, Michael O'Brien; Darragh Bolger, Niall Breen, David Doyle; Lorcan Ffrench, Colm Farrell; Cormac Moore, Sean Kenny, Tony Ffrench; Niall Murphy, Shane Murphy, Jack Hobbs.

Subs: Colm Bennett, Michael O'Hanlon, Quinn Saunders, Shane O'Hanlon, Barry O'Gorman, Robert Barron, John Doyle, Sam Kelly, Jack Petitt.
