The Wexford team to play Antrim in the quarter-final of the Leinster Senior Hurling championship in Wexford Park on Sunday has two championship debutants.

Niall Breen from the Tara Rocks club will start in goal, while 19-year-old Matthew O'Hanlon from St James' is named at full-back.

Willie Doran, who scored the vital goal against Tipperary to keep Wexford in Allianz League Division One plays at mid-field while his club-mate Ciarán Kenny plays at centre-back in the absence of the injured captain, Darren Stamp.

Jim Berry, who was Wexford's most promising forward during the recent league campaign, is at top of the right.

Colm Bonnar and his selectors look to have a reasonably settled team and they will be hoping they can overcome the men from the Glens in this tricky opener.

Wexford team to play Antrim in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship on Sunday 29 May:

Niall Breen, Paul Roche, Matthew O'Hanlon, Keith Rossiter, Lar Prendergast, Ciarán Kenny, Michael Jacob, Willie Doran, David Redmond, PJ Nolan, Harry Kehoe, Stephen Banville, Rory Jacob, Éanna Martin, Jim Berry
