Team news: Monaghan honour late captain by leaving vacancy at No. 6

July 30, 2021

The late Brendán Óg Duffy

In a lovely touch, Monaghan have left the centre back position vacant for this evening's Ulster U20FC final against Down at the Athletic Grounds.

The position had been filled in the semi-final win over Donegal a fortnight ago by Brendan Óg Duffy, who tragically lost his life in a car accident as he returned home from the game.

In what is set to be an emotional occasion, Ronan Grimes takes over the Monaghan captaincy from the late Brendan Óg.

Monaghan (U20FC v Down): Ryan Farrelly; Ronan Grimes (captain), Thomas McPhillips, Ronan Boyle; Darragh McElearney, AN Other, Shane Hanratty; Gavin McPhillips, Joel Wilson; Darragh Treanor, Jason Irwin, Michael Meehan; Shane Slevin, Donnach Swinburne, Darragh Dempsey.
