The Mc Mahon brothers Joe and Justin gave county manager Mickey Harte some good news this week as they continue their recovery from injury. Justin missed out on the concluding stages of the Allianz National League for his county as a result of an ankle injury and is yet to kick a ball in anger with the club season in Tyrone already a third of the way through. However he is hopeful of lining out for his club this Friday night when they take on neighbours Killyclogher in Healy Park. The big full back will be looking to get some game time under his belt with Tyrone’s first round Ulster Championship game against Monaghan only a couple of weeks away.
Meanwhile Joe, who sustained a broken jaw while playing for his club against Moortown in the All County League, is beginning the long road to recovery having returned to light training this week. The utility man is still some way off taking part in contact situations and is still feeling the effects of the injury but the fact that he is back running is a timely boost for the squad.
