Turbitt named to start for Armagh ahead of Tyrone test

CONORTurbitt has been included in Armagh’s starting line up ahead of this Saturday’s championship clash in Omagh.

Turbitt, who hit 0-5 in the same venue against  Tyrone on the final day of the league, failed to score in the Ulster final and was subsequently dropped last weekend.

The Clann Eireann sharpshooter came on against Westmeath and nailed the all-important goal that got Armagh over the line.

Turbitt comes into the full forward line, replacing Aidan Nugent, while Callum Cumiskey earns his first start of the championship, coming in for the injured James Morgan.

Paddy Burns is back amongst the subs having missed the majority of the season through injury while Barry McCambridge, Ross McQuillan and Shane McPartlan all came off the bench the last day

The Armagh team is as follows: Ethan Rafferty, Conor O’Neill, Aaron McKay, Aidan Forker, Greg McCabe, Callum Cumiskey, Jarly Og Burns, Ben Crealey, Ciaran Mackin, Jason Duffy, Rory Grugan, Stefan Campbell, Conor Turbitt, Rian O’Neill, Andrew Murnin
Subs: Shea Magill, Paddy Burns, Ciaran Higgins, Barry McCambridge, Ross McQuillan, Jemar Hall, Aidan Nugent, Shane McPartlan, Oisin Conaty, Cian McConville, Stephen Sheridan
