Gormley To Undergo Surgery On Troublesome Ankle
Tyrone’s National league hopes have been dealt another blow ahead of this weekend’s opener against Kildare with the news that Conor Gormley is to undergo surgery.
The three time All Star defender will have the procedure done at the Ulster Independent Clinic in Belfast on Friday to try and cure an ankle problem that has been plaguing him from last season. It’s not thought to be a major operation although it’s still likely to keep him on the sidelines for a month.
The news comes hot on the heels of an injury to Colm Cavanagh as well as Kevin Hughes’ retirement and with Sean Cavanagh still to make his comeback from shoulder surgery it means that Owen Mulligan will be the only outfield player from the starting fifteen in the 2003 All Ireland Final available to Mickey Harte for the Croke Park date with Kieran McGeeney’s Lily Whites.
