New Roscommon senior hurling manager Johnny Keane has appointed Jason Kilkenny as his captain for the coming season.
The Rossies will open their 2021 Allianz League Division 2B campaign away to Donegal at O'Donnell Park on Saturday before playing host to neighbours Mayo seven days later.
In the Christy Ring Cup, Keane's side have been drawn in Group A alongside Wicklow and Derry as they bid to claim the championship silverware for the first time.
