McMahon Back For League Final

Joe McMahon is back in the Tyrone team for Sunday’s NFL Division One final at Croke Park.

McMahon missed the semi-final win over Kildare with a groin injury, but is fully recovered and plays at left half forward.

Manager Mickey Harte has made three changes for a game which gives the Red Hands an opportunity to win a first league title in 10 years.

McMahon’s younger brother Justin is also back in the side, named at wing back, while Paddy McNeice has regained his place in attack.

Peter Harte misses out with a hamstring injury, the manager opting not to risk his nephew with the big Ulster Championship clash with All-Ireland champions Donegal just a few weeks away.

The others to drop to the bench are Ronan McNamee and Darren McCurry.

Eleven of the players who started last month’s CrokePark meeting with Dublin will line out this weekend.

Tyrone: N Morgan, PJ Quinn, C Clarke, C McCarron, C Gormley, D Carlin, Justin McMahon, C Cavanagh, S Cavanagh, Mattie Donnelly, Mark Donnelly, Joe McMahon, M Penrose, S O’Neill, P McNeice.
