Following his Man of the Match performance in the county final, Ballincollig’s George Durrant merits a call up and is rewarded with the number twelve shirt. Team mates Liam Jennings, Stephen O’Donoghue and Noel Galvin complete the Cork full back line. Michael Cussen returns to inter county football and is named at midfield. Carbery Rangers, John O’Rourke, (inset), leads the attack. For this competition CIT and UCC players are tied to their respective academies and therefore unavailable for Cork team selection.

Management: Brian Cuthbert (Bishopstown) Manager; Owen Sexton (Kilbrittain); Ciarán O’Sullivan (Urhan); Don Davis (O’Donovan Rossa).
