Tyrone forward Cathal McShane is confident that the current squad can win major silverware.

The Red Hand County ended the year empty handed, but there is loads of potential in the squad, according to their top scorer.

The Owen Roes clubman stressed to the Ulster Herald that the squad is at its strongest since he joined in 2015.

“The more men you have chomping at the bit and ready to step up the better chance we have of getting to more finals and winning silverware,” said McShane.

“We did have a serious squad in place this past season and we had lots of men able to step up when needed. There was plenty of men challenging for different positions.

“You knew if you had a jersey on the starting fifteen you were lucky because the competition was so serious. There was no room for error. If someone didn’t play well there was men on the bench capable of coming on and doing just as good a job, if not better. Having that competition is key and healthy for any squad.”
