Dooher aiming to strike the right balance

TYRONE joint senior manager Brian Dooher cautions that the team will have to get the balance right in terms of allowing their exciting crop of young emerging players to express themselves, but while adhering to a disciplined defensive shape at the same time.

With inter-county sides due to resume training in under two weeks time (April 19th), Red Hand supporters will be keen to see how the county team takes shape under the stewardship of Dooher and Feargal Logan.

It was at the backend of November that the duo were appointed as successors to long serving boss Mickey Harte but due to the vice-like grip which Covid has taken on all aspects of society they have yet to get together with their new panel in person to discuss the season ahead.


The GAA has confirmed that the National League will proceed in mid-May with Tyrone scheduled to face Donegal, Monaghan and Armagh in a shortened regional Division One campaign. And while these games are likely to take place behind closed doors, fans will tune in at home fascinated to see how the Red Hands style of play evolves.
