Confirmed that the following players have joined the training panel:
Danny Mc Nulty
Conor McAliskey
Paul Donaghy
Aidan Clarke
Peter Teague
Tiernan Quinn
Cormac Munroe
Mark Mckearney
Lee Brennan
Johnny Munroe
Would say Johnny Munroe might be the best addition to the panel of these players, potential option at centre half back which is a problem position at present. Stand out star man at the trials.
McAliskey will naturally go straight back in as a front runner for the corner forward positions alongside Bradley, McCurry and Canavan.
Lee Brennan in my opinion will find himself behind these players, just like he was before he walked off the panel. Wonder will he accept a role as a big impact player of the bench just like his 2018 role.
As for the rest - Donaghy and McNulty could offer nice plan B options with their size around the full forward line and as potential alternatives in the absense of McShane. The rest it's hard to see much of a path to the match day panel for them, be a case of biding their time.

Could McKearney potentially make an impact. He is very slight but does seem to have that kind of ability than Ryan McHugh has for Donegal as is able to slip challenges in the more open areas in the middle of the pitch.

But I'd agree - those guys along with the likes of Conor Quinn, Grimes, Murnaghan etc are there to kind of build their experience and conditioning until such time as they are ready.

Any word on Daniel Kerr? Is he still on the panel? Think he will find it really hard now to make inroads.

Interesting that Niall Morgan played as a midfielder in the Challenge games.
Any word on who the other two keepers were?

We do have some really good keepers coming through in the county at the minute.

Gallen looks a prospect, Quinn from the u20s is very highly rated too. Was impressed with Grimes from Killyclogher this year and the u17 keeper was excellent against Donegal recently (think he's Morgan from Dungannon?).

I really rate Morgan though and I'd highly doubt we'd be looking at him as a genuine outfield option?

Lorcan Quinn (Donaghmore) and Oran Grimes (Killyclogher). Benny Gallen also played outfield at the trials.

Agreed. We’d lose more with him out of nets than we would gain from him being outfield IMO. I do rate Quinn from Donaghmore I would imagine he would be the successor to Morgan.

Shea McGuigan consistenly one of the best midfielders in club action. Why wouldn't he be in the panel? In my opinion he'd be ahead of mcdonnell, and perhaps evens with Kilpatrick. Decent option, if no Fenton.

I take it you haven’t been to too many Ardboe games then.

Niall Morgan doesn't operate in midfield for Edendork, I don't know where that has come from really. Maybe working on something tactical.

He would be playing a free sweeping role for them. Excellent kick passer obviously and at county level. But with the top teams operating now on a full pressing game really, is it a goer? Maybe just something they might think about chasing a game - pushing him outfield onto the last man or to free an outfield player.

Lads Morgan isn't going to be playing outfield for Tyrone, nor Benny Gallen for that matter. I'd say it was a case of making up the numbers. New keepers on trial in nets so these other two played outfield to make up the numbers or avoid playing trialists outside their normal positions which wouldn't have been fair on them. Wouldn't get too worked up over it. Not that I have any insight or anything, just assuming!

Can't argue with the new names added, each deserves a chance. Other names mentioned already had a pop and didn't make it and at this point in their careers, aren't going to improve things. These young lads deserve a crack at it and good luck to them.

Morgan will not be playing outfield.

He is a nailed on starter in nets

It’s not the first time he’s played outfield at Tyrone trials.

Going by last nights goings on in Washington I suppose we should grateful for a smooth transition of power in Tyrone from Stalin himself over to our new saviours Logan and Dooher.

That was STG’s next step if Mickey had got another year.

He would be of a similar mindset.

Kyle Coney calls it a day.

Never really worked out for him at senior level but he was some player underage.
