New Donegal minor team manager Stephen Friel has released his training panel for the year ahead.

Friel was keen to emphasise the panel released is not set in stone for the Championship opener away to Cavan on May 20 in Breffni Park.

“The panel will undoubtedly change with players leaving and new faces coming on board before championship in May, the former Naomh Colmcille manager said. “Players impressing management and currently not included will be asked to join and similarly those players not performing will not be retained”

Friel has taken over the reigns from Charlie Mulgrew, who was in charge for two years.
