Coalisland determined to get back on top in Tyrone


Management team:
Damien O’Hagan, Peter Herron and Jarlath O’Hagan.

Championship programme:

Tyrone SFC first round
Coalisland v Clonoe

Team news:

CLONOE, Clonoe, Clonoe. Since the championship draw was made back in February, Coalisland will have been licking their lips the prospect of playing the O’Rahilly’s in the first round of the championship (and vice-versa, of course). Last year’s semi-final defeat to Trillick was devastating, so they could be men on a mission in a more general sense as they seek their second title in three years. They have quality players all over the park, albeit Padraig Hampsey has been sidelined with a hamstring injury. If he gets himself right, and Tiarnan Quinn continues the form that saw him score five points from play in a recent league match against Omagh, they won’t be far away. Na Fianna also seem to be extremely fit this year, but their match against Clonoe may take on a life on its own (and it’s just a shame, albeit understandably so, that there won’t be thousands there to witness it).
