A second chance for Coney and Grugan?

Enda McGinley believes Mickey Harte could be tempted to recall Kyle Coney and Conan Grugan to the Tyrone senior football squad.

As Harte contemplates the possible make-up of his 2019 squad, former Red Hands ace McGinley points out that giving players a second chance is an alternative to introducing fresh blood:

“Maybe that would be running through Mickey's mind. The big step up to intercounty level means players must be taken in and perhaps given time to develop into quality players in two or three years’ time or he might indeed be looking at some of the older players that have been around the panel before,” the three-times All-Ireland winner told The Belfast Telegraph.

“People like these could currently be playing well for their clubs and he might be looking to see if they are worth a second go. They would be brought in, I imagine, to make an impact.

“I'm thinking of players like Conan Grugan and Kyle Coney who have shown and are showing with their clubs at the minute just what they can are capable of."
