Cruciate Injury Rules Out Ronan O’Neill

Rising Tyrone star Ronan O’Neill is set to miss the rest of the season after it was confirmed on Friday afternoon that he has torn his cruciate ligament.

The Omagh St.Endas clubman received the bad news when he visited Belfast for an examination. U21 captain Ronan sustained the injury on Monday night while preparing for Tyrone’s Ulster quarter final clash with Donegal. It’s obviously a massive blow for the player first and foremost while Tyrone will be reeling from the news as well.

The 2010 All Ireland minor winner is a key player on this year’s U21 team while he was set to no doubt feature for the seniors in the closing stages of the National League as well as the championship.

He made an immediate impact on his senior debut in the opening game of this year’s McKenna Cup against Queens when he came off the bench to find the net with his first touch while he gave a man of the match display notching 1-4 in the same competition when the Red Hands accounted for Fermanagh at the semi final stage. His only appearance in the league came as a substitute in the opening game against Kildare at Croke Park when he scored a point.

The season had begun so well for him having helped Omagh win the Ulster U21 tournament in Creggan last month but he now faces an operation and won’t feature again until 2013. Everyone at teamtalkmag.com and all Tyrone Gaels wish Ronan all the best and no doubt he will be back terrorising defences at club and county levels next season.
