Tyrone trio handed first starts

Padraig Hampsey is set to make his first start

TYRONE manager Mickey Harte will give first championship starts to Padraig Hampsey, Kieran McGeary and Conal McCann in Sunday’s Ulster Championship quarter-final with Derry at Celtic Park.

The trio have all tasted championship action previously, but only as substitutes with McCann and McGeary being called from the bench on three occasions previously and Hampsey twice.

As expected, defenders Cathal McCarron (hamstring) and Justin McMahon (quad) miss out through injury.
