THE Fermanagh and Western representative squad for Saturday’s game against Sligo/Leitrim District League has been named.

Manager, Michael Kerr, has named a formidable 18 man squad that includes Player of the Year Ryan Campbell, Mulhern Cup winning captain Jason Keenan and Tummery Athletic league winning player-manager, Ryan Hanna.

18 players were used against Monaghan and Kerr is excited by the prospect of getting one over on near neighbours Sligo/Leitrim, a team that includes former Ballinamallard United players Gary Armstrong and Niall Brennan.
