Tyrone U-20 stars parachuted into senior set-up ahead of Armagh showdown

By Niall Gartland

THREE members of Tyrone’s All-Ireland U-20 winning squad have been drafted into the senior set-up ahead of Sunday week’s qualifier clash against Armagh.

Gaelic Life understands that Niall Devlin, who captained the side to All-Ireland glory, Michael McGleenan and Steve Donaghy have both been enlisted by senior joint-managers Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher.

Coalisland clubman Niall Devlin delivered a series of exceptional performances in the half-back line throughout their championship campaign, while Michael McGleenan, son of former Tyrone star Mattie, also caught the caught with his fielding ability and rampaging attacking style.

Steve Donaghy, whose father Plunkett starred for Tyrone through the eighties and early nineties, has also been drafted in to the squad ahead of their must-win game against Armagh. He played centre-half back for the Tyrone U-20s this year.
