Tyrone to take on Armagh again in knock out action
Following three rounds of McKenna Cup action, Tyrone find themselves back in the Athletic Grounds again on Wednesday evening (8pm) as the knock-out stages of the 2015 series have been reached.
The O’Neill County have won all three of their 2015 matches in Section C of the McKenna Cup as the four-in-a-row bid for the McKenna Cup continues for Mickey Harte’s charges. Ironically the calendar year began in the Athletic Grounds as Tyrone secured a 1-12 to 1-10 win over the Orchard County in a somewhat heated and intense affair. Indeed there were delays of almost half hour for the match itself on that occasion due to the major crowd congestion pre throw-in, as over 8,500 spectators attended the tie. No doubt Ulster GAA will be prepared for a similar scenario as the big rivalry begins to gather pace again.
So far 28 players have played for Tyrone in the McKenna Cup while of course there are a number of others who have been on duty for the colleges during the competition. Ronan McNamee, Colm Cavanagh and Ronan McNabb have picked up the Official Man of the Match accolades in the three ties to date. This next test will provide another indication on the improvement and progress of some of the newer players within the ranks with the potential, if winning on Wednesday night, seeing a fifth competitive outing for Tyrone on Saturday 24th January with the McKenna Cup Final scheduled.
Of course the return of National League football will then be just one week later as Tyrone will take on neighbours, Monaghan, the side who ended Ulster Championship ambitions in 2014, in round one of the league series at 7pm in Healy Park, on Saturday 31st January. A trip to Castlebar to take on Mayo in round 2 on Sunday 8th February will follow before a three week break and the home tie against Derry in Healy Park on Saturday 28th February (7pm).
While many will think it tough that Tyrone finished top of their section with three wins, beating Armagh in the process, and now have to go back to the Athletic Grounds for the game, it is because the semi finalists agreed to toss for home venue, with Cavan and Armagh both securing home advantage.
Cavan will take on Fermanagh in the other semi final in Kingspan Breffni Park. Fermanagh lost by -12 to 2-5 against Donegal on Sunday but their win over Derry saw them finish top of Section B on scoring average.
