Tyrone name three championship debutants against Derry

THREE players will make their first championship starts for Tyrone in Sunday’s Ulster Championship preliminary round clash against Derry.

Ben McDonnell, Michael Cassidy and Brian Kennedy have been handed starting jerseys as Tyrone go in search of their third Ulster title in four years.

Each made a big impact in Tyrone’s Division One campaign, while elsewhere there is an experienced look to the team albeit Colm Cavanagh has to be content with a place on the subs’ bench.
