Tyrone ladies senior manager Gerry Moane has opened the door to any player who thinks they could make the step up to senior inter county football in 2013. After a disappointing first term in charge the Fermanagh man and his management team of Aiden Connolly and Barry Grimes will cast the net across the county in an attempt to bolster the fortunes of The Red Hand County. An early Ulster championship exit followed by a loss to Mayo in the all Ireland series hurt Moane who is adamant that the door is wide open now for new faces.

“We had a disappointing year but I know that the quality is in the county. That’s the frustrating thing. I think everyone in the county knows the potential. We have great players coming along. It’s now a case of getting those players on board. To that end we have worked hard behind the scenes over the past couple of weeks and the response has been good.”

Perhaps it was the magnitude of the losses through the year that was more annoying for the Tyrone management team. They had pulled together a host of new players at the start of their tenure. Unfortunately for Moane and co less than a handful of those players made an impact. For various reasons many stepped away, those reasons have been thouroughly teased out by Moane and he is confident that those players and new faces will buy into their plans for the team. The target for Tyrone is to see the county climbing the ladder of success again. They remain in the top flight in the national league but unlike other years the squad will be up and running earlier.

The Tyrone domestic season wrapped up just over a fortnight ago but Moane, Connolly and Grimes were already planning for the 2013 season. A series of trials will hopefully reveal some potential new talent. That said all current county players are also set to trial again as the management assess all aspects of the county set up. The first of the two trials is scheduled for Fintona on Sunday at 1pm with a second trial on November 4th at Galbally. Moane outlined the plans,

“We are having open trials, a fresh start and the opportunity for players to step up and stake a claim. I am well aware that there are players not named on our initial list but if a club or player feels they have something to offer then come along to either trial. This is an open door policy now, you will get a chance”

The management team though have indicated that all girls must attend if they are to be considered for the 2013 squad.
