GAA Match for Michaela squads announced

Tyrone's Sean Cavanagh is one of the stars set to line out for Ulster in the Match for Michaela

Ulster boss Joe Kernan has signalled his intentions to make the forthcoming 'Match for Michaela' as competitive as possible, by naming a seriously impressive team for next Saturday nights' extravaganza.

The match, which will be a fundraiser for the Michaela Foundation charity, is set to pit the current All-Ireland champions Donegal against the cream of the rest of province in what could be the last big event hosted at Casement Park before the redevelopment of the ground.

After landing eight GAA/GPA All-Stars earlier in the week, Donegal will be bringing as strong a squad as possible for the match, to be played under floodlights.

However, two of those All-Star recipients - Mark McHugh and Neil McGee - are believed to be injury doubts, while a third - Karl Lacey, will probably play no part as he sustained a hamstring in club action for Four Masters last Sunday.

The Ulster team to start the match contains at least one player from each Ulster county - excluding Donegal of course - with Tyrone leading the way in representation with four players.

Tickets for the game are available through the usual sources, including county offices, although those arriving to the ground on the night will be able to pay at the gate.

Ulster squad: Brendan McVeigh, Ryan McCluskey, Dan Gordon, Chrissy McKaigue, Ciaran McKeever, Darren Hughes, James Loughrey, Sean Cavanagh, David Givney, Colm Cavanagh, Mark Poland, Joe McMahon, Martin Penrose, Michael McCann, Conor McManus
