NO CLUB VS COUNTY ISSUE IN TYRONE – HARTE

FROM ODHRÁN CRUMLEY 

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte believes that there is no issue between clubs and the county team. Club games went ahead in the Red Hand county last weekend, with all clubs availing of their county stars. 

Club Vs County is an on running battle in most counties, with the problem being particularly highlighted in Derry in recent weeks after captain Enda Lynn lined out for his club against management orders, injuring himself and missing the Waterford qualifier.

Harte however believes that not all counties can be generalised to be in this bracket, with no such problems in the Tyrone camp.

Speaking to the Ulster Herald, the three-times All-Ireland winning manager stated that he has no problem with his players lining out for their clubs like they did last weekend.

“There is a lot of talk that it’s all about county or club. There is a generality that it is happening everywhere. I always felt that wasn’t happening in Tyrone,” said Harte.

“Tyrone players get lots of opportunity to play league football. They’ll play a minimum of ten club league games, and all the championship matches.

“I’m happy enough with that when we work together. Every player in the panel is getting competitive football and I think that is an advantage.”
