KEVIN CASSIDY: Trillick’s laser-like focus paid off

Trillick upset the applecart last weekend, meaning at the Tyrone Senior Football Championship remains the hardest club championship in the land to retain.

Curse of the champions

2022 Dromore’s semi-final exit DROMORE emerged triumphant in the 2021 championship and deservedly so as they lay waste to Coalisland in a relatively one-sided Tyrone SFC final.

Oguz driven to succeed with Red Hands

By Niall Gartland LINING out in the red and white of Tyrone is an achievement in itself, but it’s a results business and Joe Oguz was relieved to come out on the winning side of a competitive tussle against Armagh last Saturday evening.
