Tyrone have also named their team for Sunday. In fact, they’ve gone one further and named their subs’ list too. Here are the full details:
Tyrone (NFL Division One v Mayo. 9/2/2014): Niall Morgan (Edendork); Aidan McCrory (Errigal Ciaran), Conor Clarke (Omagh), Barry Tierney (Omagh); Ciaran McGinley (Errigal Ciaran), Peter Harte (Errigal Ciaran), Tiernan McCann (Killyclogher); Colm Cavanagh (The Moy), Conan Grugan (Omagh); Emmet McKenna (Egish), Shay McGuigan (Ardboe), Peter Hughes (Eskra); Darren McCurry (Edendork), Matthew Donnelly (Trillick), Ronan O’Neill (Omagh). Subs: Michael O’Neill (Clonoe), Dermot Carlin (Killyclogher), Sean Cavanagh (The Moy), Kyle Coney (Ardboe), Mark Donnelly (Carrickmore), Connor McAlliskey (Clonoe), Danny McBride (Strabane), Ryan McKenna (Eaglais), Ronan McNabb (Dromore), Ronan McNamee (Aghyaran), Patrick McNiece (Coalisland).
As this article in Word in Sport confirms, the above team shows five changes from the one that started in the draw with Derry last Saturday night. Two players – Emmet McKenna and Tiernan McCann – will be making their league debuts for the Red Hand on Sunday.
The above team is radically changed from the one that started last year’s All-Ireland semi-final against our lads. Only five of that semi-final team – Conor Clarke, Ciaran McGinley, Peter Harte, Colm Cavanagh and Mattie Donnelly – are named to start on Sunday though a number of others, including one S Cavanagh (The Moy), are named amongst the subs.
