Ulster chief issues McKenna Cup warning

Saturday, December 30

An Ulster Council chief has called on intercounty managers not to pressurise footballers into playing for their county over their college in next month's Dr McKenna Cup campaign.

The Council's Director of Coaching and Games Dr Eugene Young issued a statement to county secretaries in the run up to Christmas asking them to make sure any footballers selected by Queen’s University Belfast, St Mary’s and University of Ulster Jordanstown are allowed to play for their college.

Three years ago county representatives and managers met to discuss burnout and clashing training sessions from November to February and Young is concerned that what was agreed then will be endorsed next year.

“All involved agreed that the young players involved in Higher Education who were being asked to train with the counties were under too much pressure," he said.

“There was a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ and formal regulations developed for the McKenna Cup.

“It was agreed that if the quality of the training received at higher education was good then the young players should be able to train with the Universities during this period.”

Young stressed that “the regulations clearly state that all Universities have first call on the players.

"Can we ask counties ‘in the best interests of the players’ to please allow these young players to play with their institutions, if selected to do so, and not to put pressure on them to choose county over university.

“For the good of the competition, your help in making sure that these rules and regulations are adhered to would be appreciated and pressure from county management teams on players to play with their county over their university should not happen.”

Cavan boss performs major surgery

Saturday, December 30

New Cavan manager Donal Keoghan has performed major surgery on his Senior football panel with just 17 of last year’s squad set to feature in the upcoming campaign.

Of Martin McElkennon’s 2006 squad eight high-profile footballers have either been dropped, opted out or retired - Pauric Reilly, Cathal Collins, Anthony Gaynor, James Reilly (Drung), Eddie O’Reilly (Mullahoran), Finbarr O’Reilly and Michael Brides.

Gaynor is travelling in Australia and will be away for at least three months, while James Reilly is taking a year out as he is unable to give the necessary commitment.

Peter Reilly is retired, and the other five have been dropped.

A further seven panellists have been let go by Keoghan - Michael Brennan, Dermot McGlade, Eamonn O’Reilly (Shannon Gaels), Enda King, Dermot Sheridan, Martin Lynch and Joey Jordan.

Mulgrew makes few changes in Fermanagh

Monday, January 1

Fermanagh senior football manager Charlie Mulgrew has made very few changes to his panel ahead of the McKenna Cup.

All of those who played in last year's championship are back in the fold once again, with the exception of injured midfielder Liam McBarron.

Into the panel come Ciaran McElroy, Declan McKeever, Paul McCusker, Dara McQuaid, Donal McAvinue, Shane Lyons and Shane O'Brien at the expense of bit-part players Darren Murphy, Fergal Reilly, Adrian Little, Paul Martin, Declan Reilly and Paddy Lohan.

Ciarán O'Reilly and Ryan Keenan will play for their respective universities, Queen's and St Mary's, in the competition.

Armagh depleted for McKenna Cup
Monday, January 1

Armagh senior football manager Joe Kernan has admitted that his panel is seriously depleted going into this month's McKenna Cup.

With his own club Crossmaglen Rangers still involved in the All-Ireland club championship, Kernan will be missing seven panelists (Aaron and Stephen Kernan, John and Tony McEntee, Francie Bellew, Paul Hearty and Oisin McConville) from the county and Ulster champions while Ronan Clarke and Brian Mallon are long-term absentees with cruciate ligament injuries.

Armagh will also be without six players, Charlie Vernon, Micheal O'Rourke, Paul Keenan, James Lavery, Stefan Forker and Finnian Moriarty, who will be representing third-level colleges in the competition. Also unavailbale is Paddy McKeever who is currently out of the country.

"Ideally, I like to go out and win every game, but we have to accept that it's going to be very tough given the situation we are in,'' Kernan told the Irish News.

The senior panel, or what remains of it, are currently training with the under-21 squad and a number of the youngsters may well be given a chance in the senior jersey.

"Training with the under-21s suits both of us at the minute," Kernan added.

"It allows Peter (McDonnell, under-21 manager) to judge his players against county footballers. It also bulks up our numbers at training.

"As things stood, I only had six forwards available for selection and that was before any injuries."
