Huge blow for Tyrone as McGinley opts out

The Errigal Ciaran man has ruled himself out for the season due to work commitments. McGinley is currently based in England, where he works as an engineer, and is unable to commit to the Red Hand cause.

He has been one of Tyrone’s most effective performers the past couple of seasons, initially as an attacking wing back, before switching to wing forward.

Midfielder Conan Grugan has also opted out.

Meanwhile, speculation over Conor Gormley’s future continues, following his exclusion from the Dr McKenna Cup squad. Joe McMahon will play no part in the McKenna Cup, but confirmed he will return for another season, having agreed a flexible approach to his training regime.

Tyrone will also miss out on the immense talent that is Conor McKenna, the exciting English teenager who recently embarked on a professional career with AFL club Essendon.

McKenna Cup squad: Ronan McNamee (Aghyaran), Aidan McCrory (Errigal Ciaran), Peter Harte (Errigal Ciaran), Mark Donnelly (Carrickmore), Niall McKenna (Donaghmore), Cathal McCarron (Dromore), Colm Cavanagh (Moy), Sean Cavanagh (Moy), Justin McMahon (Omagh), Barry Tierney (Omagh), Kyle Coney (Ardboe), Shay McGuigan (Ardboe), Dwayne Quinn (Clonoe), PJ Lavery (Clonoe), Mickey O’Neill (Clonoe), Tiernan McCann (Killyclogher), Padraig McNulty (Dungannon), Patrick Quinn (Dungannon), Cathal McShane (Owen Roes), Niall Morgan (Edendork), Darren McCurry (Edendork), Ryan McKenna (Eglish), Emmett McKenna (Eglish), Peter Hughes (Eskra), Plunkett Kane (Coalisland), Rory Brennan (Trillick).
