Mc Kenna Makes Most of Mc Kenna Cup Recall

While Tyrone fielded a young and inexperienced side this afternoon giving debuts to three players, it was the impressive form of the recalled Niall Mc Kenna that caught the eye of most. The Donaghmore star spent last year off the panel and was only recently restored to the county squad. He looked like a player keen to make up for lost time as he produced a workmanlike first half before really finding his feet in the second.

Tyrone struggled at times in the first period around the middle of the park but when Mc Kenna was moved to centre field for the second period Tyrone really got going. Both he and Conan Grugan upped the pace of their displays after the break as they completely dominated the opposition. Mc Kenna showed just why he was such a highly rated youth player for Tyrone with a superb second half that saw him feature highly in the possession stakes as he covered every inch of the park for the cause. Fielding, tackling and linking the play he seemed to find himself in just the right place when he was most needed and judging by what we saw today there is no doubt he can be a real asset for Mickey Harte’s side this year.
