Loughmacrory looking to earn respect


Management team:
Martin McConnell, Ryan Keenan, Ciaran Meenagh, Pat Donaghy and Conall Curran.

Championship programme:

Tyrone SFC first round
Loughmacrory v Dungannon

Team news:

LOUGHMACRORY played in the junior ranks as recently as 2013, and they’ll have the attitude that they have nothing to lose against Dungannon on Saturday. They have some of the finest young players in Tyrone, like u-20 skipper Antoin Fox and senior panellist Conall Grimes, but it has to be said that they have found Division One football fairly tough going since the action started nearly a month ago. They actually lost to Dungannon already in the league, and lost a promotion play-off against the Clarke’s in 2018, so they are underdogs, but they’ve been training hard and picked up their first league win at the weekend with a comeback victory over Pomeroy. Pearse Grimes sustained a long-term injury in their league clash against Dungannon, but other than that they have a clean bill of health. Captain is Shane Dobbs and other players deserving a mention are Cathal and Aodhan Donaghy, Cathaoir Gallagher and Eoin Mullan.
