GAA – O’Neill Named In Tyrone Team For Kerry

Stephen O’Neill is back in the Tyrone team for Saturday’s All-Ireland SFC Qualifier clash with Kerry.

Skipper O’Neill has recovered from a calf injury which kept him out of the win over Roscommon, and slots back into the starting line-up at full forward for the Killarney tie.

The former Footballer of the Year’s inclusion is the only change made by manager Mickey Harte from the team that started atHyde Parklast weekend. He comes in for Johnny Lafferty, who made his championship debut against Roscommon.

Kerry manager Jack O’Connor has made one defensive change for the game.

Shane Enright has been brought into the team at corner back in the only change from the side that had a fortunate 2-10 to 1-12 win over Westmeath last Sunday.

Brian Maguire misses out in a defensive reshuffle which sees Killian Young move into the half-back line.

Darran O’Sullivan, who scored a crucial goal in a 25-minute cameo against Westmeath, is still carrying a hamstring injury and has failed to make the starting XV.

Tyrone: P McConnell, A McCrory, C Clarke, D Carlin, C McCarron, C Gormley, Sean O’Neill, J McMahon, C Cavanagh, Mattie Donnelly, M Donnelly, P Harte, M Penrose, Stephen O’Neill. O Mulligan.
