McAliskey Injury Blow

Tyrone have been dealt a blow with the news that Connor McAliskey is set to miss the start of the new season due to an injury he sustained while playing for Clonoe in the Ulster Club against Ballinderry.

McAliskey broke into the Tyrone senior squad this season on the back of finishing top scorer in the Tyrone senior league last year and he played a major role as Clonoe won the title for the first time.

He picked up where he left off this season when he also finished top scorer in the club championship as the O’Rahillys won the O’Neill Cup for an eighth time. A shoulder injury though has ended his season just as Clonoe bid to retain their league crown.

“I damaged my left shoulder when going for a ball with ten minutes to go against Ballinderry,” said Connor.

“I had an MRI scan at the Royal Hospital in Belfast on Tuesday when I was diagnosed as having a grade three tear in the a/c joint of my left shoulder. It’s a big disappointment that I’m not able to help the club defend the league title but we did win the championship so I suppose you have to take the good with the bad.

Tyrone physio Louis O’Connor is looking after my rehab and I should be okay by the middle of January. My arm is still in a sling and it’s still quite sore and one thing for sure I wouldn’t be rushing back until its one hundred percent right. Ideally I would like to be back to play some part in the McKenna Cup before the beginning of the National League but I will see how it goes.”
