Boost for Tyrone as Cavanagh returns

Tyrone Sean Cavanagh 1406

Sean Cavanagh gave Tyrone supporters a huge boost on Sunday night by declaring himself fit for the big Ulster Championship clash with Donegal on May 17.

Cavanagh recently went through an operation on a knee problem, and spent some time walking with the aid of crutches.

But he returned to action with his club at the weekend playing for Moy in a Division One
league tie against neighbours Dungannon.

Speculation had been rife that the Red Hand skipper would miss out on the Ballybofey clash, but he now looks certain to lead the Red Hands as they bid to cause a preliminary round upset.
