Meath boss Andy McEntee has picked three debutants in his starting 15 for tomorrow's Leinster SFC tie away to Longford.
Goalkeeper Andrew Colgan (Donaghmore-Ashbourne), midfielder Paddy Kennelly (Dunderry) and centre-forward Ben Brennan (St Colmcille's) will all get their first taste of senior championship action at Pearse Park.
Sean Curran returns at corner-back despite having not featured in the league campaign while Longwood veteran Mickey Burke takes his place at wing-forward.
The Royals warmed up for their championship opener with a 4-13 to 1-13 victory over neighbours Westmeath in the much-delayed O'Byrne Cup final and Curran is the only change from the side that lined out that day in Mullingar.
Meath (Leinster SFC v Longford): Andrew Colgan; Seamus Lavin, Conor McGill, Sean Curran; James McEntee, Donal Keogan, Shane McEntee; Bryan Menton, Paddy Kennelly; Cillian O'Sullivan, Ben Brennan, Mickey Burke; Bryan McMahon, Graham Reilly, Donal Lenihan.
Subs: Marcus Brennan, Conor Dempsey, Daniel O'Neill, Cian O'Brien, Adam Flanagan, Eamon Wallace, Joey Wallace, Thomas O'Reilly, Luke Martyn, Shane Glynn, Gavin McCoy.
