Four Antrim players quit panel

Antrim football manager Jody Gormley has been hit with the news that four of his players have quit the panel ahead of this summer's Tommy Murphy Cup campaign.

Team captain Sean Kelly is one of the four St. Gall's players who told their team-mates at a team meeting on Tuesday night that they would not be staying in the squad for the second tier tournament which begins in mid-July.

Kelly, full-forward CJ McGourty, defender Aodhan Gallagher and substitute Terry O'Neill have all left the panel.

Kelly had used last year's Tommy Murphy Cup campaign, which culminated in a final loss to Wicklow, as a springboard to get his own inter-county career back on track.

Gormley's Antrim charges are set to take a three-week break before the Tommy Murphy Cup gets underway.

They were catapulted into the competition following last Sunday's Ulster SFC defeat to Cavan at Casement Park.
