Tyrone V Fermanagh McKenna Cup Updates
Apologies for no second half service but we had absolutely no broadband coverage from Brewster Park and could do very little about it. Tyrone won in the end 2-11 to 11 points with Ciaran Girvan slotting home a goal five minutes into the second half. Marty Penrose and Brian Mc Guigan were the pick of the forwards while Ciaran Girvan battled gamely throughout. Defensively Cathal Mc Carron was outstanding and Tyrone can now look forward to their final group game on Saturday night against UUJ. That game is in Omagh at 7:30pm and, broadband permitting, we will bring you live updates.
