Young Peter Very Much In The “Harte” Of It.
Versatility and adaptability are two of the basic requirements of the modern day inter county footballer and it would appear the more adaptable and versatile you are the better chance you have of being successful. Peter Harte has shown himself to be a special talent throughout his young career and over the past two weeks has enhanced his growing reputation lining out at centre back and then centre forward in the two Mc Kenna Cup games and acquitting himself more than well on both occasions.
It was his defensive work and his ability to lift his team mates late in the game against QUB that caught the eye last week while on Sunday past he virtually ran the show in the second half from centre forward. He was involved in all of Tyrone’s best work and was the architect of most of it. His ability to tackle hard and well belies his slight appearance and he must regularly be Tyrone’s top exponent of the turnover.
The biggest quandary the manager may face in respect of his flame haired nephew is which position to play him in to benefit the team. He appears equally at home in the half back or half forward line but Tyrone’s need for a play maker may see him finish up in the forwards unit.
He is looking more and more like the real thing, if not quite yet the finished product and with a bit of luck yesterday might have scored two goals. The second chance in particular drew a great save from the Antrim keeper but the way he was able to find space in the tight confines of the opposition square was reminiscent of Peter Canavan at his best. Of course the Fermanagh manager will be well aware of the threat he poses and will surely give him special attention on Wednesday night.
