The Jim Devlin Cup made a welcome return to the Tyrone club scene at the weekend and judging by the competitive nature of the majority games there is no doubt that it has a place in the calendar. Of the eight first round games that were played three of them required extra time and penalties to decide while in another two ties only the minimum separated the two sides at the final whistle.


Dromore came with a late rally in both normal and extra time to beat hosts Coalisland on spot kicks. The St.Dympnas led 0-7 to 0-5 at the break with Oran Sludden, Niall Sludden and Paudie Dillon getting a brace each, Donal Sheeran with a couple for the Fianna with Peter Heron and Stephen McNally also on target. James McCann scored the only goal of the game in the first attack of the second half to put Coalisland in front with Sheeran and Sean L Corr tagging on points. Dromore closed out the game strongly with points from Niall Sludden and Peter Teague to force extra time. A Couple of Cormac O’Hagan scored had Coalisland back in front but Teague and Dillon levelled before the visitors won the penalty shootout.


Dungannon played host to neighbours Donaghmore at O’Neill Park and after it had ended 1-11 each after extra time Ciaran Barker scored the decisive penalty, just like he did in the 2020 County Final. Paul Donaghy top scored for the Clarkes with half a dozen points with Pady Quinn getting their goal while Padraig McNulty and Oisin Cowan contributed a brace each with Lorcan Mallon marking his return from injury with a score as well. Donaghmore trailed by eight points at one stage but they produced a superb comeback with Tiernan Drayne finding the net and Tom Grimes and Niall McKenna featuring among the points but their efforts just came up short.


Errigal Ciaran keeper Conor McAnenly saved three spot kicks as his side progressed to the last eight at the expense of Killyclogher after it had ended 0-13 each after extra time. Odhran Robinson top scored for the Dunmoyle based men with 0-7 to his name with Dara McGinley, Eoin Kelly, Mark Kavanagh, Ciaran McGinley, Peter Og McCartan and Daniel Blake their other marksmen. Oisin McCann, Conall McCann and ,Mark Bradley all featured on the scoresheet for hosts Killyclogher.


Galbally held off a late comeback to edge past neighbours Carrickmore away from home on a 1-8 to 1-7  scoreline. Oisin McGee scored an 8th minute goal for the Pearses while Mark Donnelly, Marc Lennon and Daniel Kerr scored as they led 1-3 to 0-4 at the break, Ciaran Daly with four frees for the hosts. Respective keepers Ronan McGeary and Ryan McGarrity made fine saves in the opening period. Danny Fullerton and Sean Hughes swapped points on the restart before McGee and a Brace from Donnelly had the Pearses five clear with eight minutes to play. A Fullerton goal narrowed the gap with another Daly free leaving just the minimum between them. Galbally full back Conor Quinn then hit a brilliant score and while Carrickmore had the final say through Rory Loughran it was the visitors who prevailed on a 1-8 to 1-7 scoreline.


Double winners Trillick travelled to the Loughshore to take on Ardboe and they came through on a 1-6 to 0-8 scoreline. Hogan Cup Final man of the match Charlie Donnelly grabbed the only goal of the game with Lee Brennan top scoring for the St.Macartans with 0-5 to his name with Simon Garrity their other marksman. David Mulgrew weighed in with five frees for the Rossas with Conall Devlin, Mattie Bell and Conall Quinn scoring a point each.


Goals proved decisive as Pomeroy saw off the challenge of Eglish at Plunkett Park, 3-6 to 1-8 the final scoreline. Pomeroy led 2-3 to 1-4 at the break thanks to goals at the start and end of the half from Hugh McNamee and Ryan Loughran. Ronan Duffin hit their three points while Seamus Muldoon got the Eglish goal and Conor Holmes (2), Colm Byrne and Muldoon had points. Matthew McGleenan and Dan Muldoon helped draw the sides level on the restart before Duffin converted a penalty for the Plunketts. A brace from Ethan Jordan kept Eglish in touch but Pomeroy closed the game out with points from Duffin, McNamee and Jude Campbell.



Clonoe emerged emphatic winners over neighbours Edendork at O’Rahilly Park. Darragh McGrath and Ryan McCabe got the Clonoe goals and both of them also featured among the points as did Shea Coney (3), Connor McAliskey (2), Danny McNulty (2), Stephen McNulty (2) and Fintan McClure.


Omagh made the trip to Loughmacrory and produced a fine display to book their place in the last eight of the competition. Oisin Millar top scored for the winners with 2-2 to his name while Conor O’Donnell and Eoghan McNamee had 1-1 each. Hugh Gallagher was the St.Endas other goal scorer on a day when they had points from Fionnbar Taggart (3), Ryan McBride (2), Dan Haigney (2), Conan Grugan, Daniel McCrossan and Bradley Fox.
