Tyrone name unchanged line-up for Ulster final

Mickey Harte is bidding for a sixth Ulster title as Tyrone senior boss

WHETHER or not it’s the team that actually starts, Tyrone boss Mickey Harte has named an unchanged line-up for Sunday’s Ulster final against Down.

Captain Sean Cavanagh is set to make his 87th championship appearance, while Ardboe youngster David Mulgrew is on course to make his second championship start with the Red Hands after an excellent semi-final performance against Donegal.

Padraig Hampsey has been named at centre-half back even though he usually lines out in the corner-back position for his county.

Elsewhere there are a host of familiar faces, including 2016 All-Stars Peter Harte and Mattie Donnelly, and some less familiar names like Killyclogher midfielder Conall McCann, who was man of the match in their quarter-final against Derry.

His midfield partner Colm Cavanagh has recovered from a knee injury sustained while playing for his club Moy almost a fortnight ago.
