New joint Tyrone football manager Brian Dooher says he and Feargal Logan will have “an open-door policy” next season.

Dooher and Logan were appointed as Tyrone’s new management on Wednesday, succeeding Mickey Harte after the three-time All-Ireland winning boss stepped down following 18 years in charge.

The pair were in charge of the county’s successful U21 side in 2015 and their appointment is set to see them reunited with the likes of Cathal McShane, Padraig Hampsey, Mark Bradley and Conor Meyler.

"We were lucky we had good times with the U21s, and that group of boys form the core of the current team," Dooher is quoted saying by RTE Sport.

"We're looking forward to working with them again, and see where that takes us.

"Our main aim is to try to create an environment where those boys can give of their best for Tyrone football."

The former Red Hands captain added: “I can definitely say that the door is open to everybody. It’s an open-door policy that we have here.

"I think this year’s Tyrone Championship was a revelation. Everybody stood up and watched Tyrone football, so I’m sure there’s players out there, and hopefully we’ll be in a position to give those players an opportunity to wear a Tyrone jersey in upcoming years."
