ADRIAN MULLEN HAS been selected for the Kilkenny U20 side in their Leinster hurling opener tonight against Laois at the start of a big week as he will be involved in next Sunday’s senior final in Croke Park.
Mullen hit 1-3 against Wexford nine days ago for the Kilkenny side and is likely to be a key figure for Brian Cody’s side as they chase Leinster honours next Sunday.
He’s been named at wing-forward tonight in the side managed by DJ Carey for the game in O’Moore Park in Portlaoise.
Mullen won an All-Ireland senior medal in March with Ballyhale Shamrocks and is joined by three club-mates from that victory in goalkeeper Dean Mason, midfielder Evan Shefflin – who will captain the team – and corner-forward Eoin Cody.
Mason and Cody along with wing-back David Blanchfield won All-Ireland Croke Cup medals with St Kieran’s earlier this year.
Laois have also named their team for tonight’s game.
