OMAGH Accies have been boosted by the return of former players Neil Brown and Allister Beckett.
Coach Phil Marshall confirmed this week that the gifted double act had again registered for their hometown club after a season playing in the All Ireland League Division Two at City of Derry.
Beckett can play fullback or out-half while elusive runner Brown operates in the centre or wing.
Both enhanced their reputations at Judges Road and Marshall is delighted to again secure their services.
“It’s a massive encouragement for everyone at the club,” said the Accies boss.
“Good news travels fast. I’m delighted to get them back, they are quality players. It’s massive boost to the squad and massive morale boost to everyone..
“I said to them ‘welcome home’, they are back where they belong. They are going to bring quality to the team and they will help us with our ambitions.
“We want to do big things next season and that’s what we are striving hard for in relation to training as we speak.
“We were looking around for that bit of quality that takes you over the line sometimes, that wee bit of quality that gets you the bonus point or a win instead of a defeat.
“Both players got a lot of game-time at City of Derry in the All Ireland League. I believe the two guys returning will stop any other players leaving us this year. That’s the big sign for me.”
