Monday marked the long-awaited return to collective training for clubs in the North, but questions remain about how the upcoming season will unfold. Accordingly, we’ve sought the views of a number of Tyrone club players on their hopes for the year ahead.
Here, Omagh St Enda’s star Connor O’Donnell answers our questions.
1. How has the latest lockdown been for you and Omagh St Enda’s?
I can’t complain as it gives plenty of time to get the body ready and build up a good base of fitness before returning collectively.
2.The GAA released its revised calendar last week – what did you make of it from a club players’ perspective?
I think it’s a good thing in terms of knowing when the championship will be, but for the short term when restrictions ease, a few starred games could surely be arranged.
3. Do you feel the Tyrone CCC did a good job with last year’s fixtures? Did you enjoy it and would you like any changes this time around?
The CCC have done an excellence job in the circumstances to accommodate the games. And again, a clear guidance of when league games and championship will be played is always a big help.
4. What are your hopes for the season ahead? What is your club looking to achieve?
My hope for this year is to be the best we can be and make up for the past few years where we exited the championship early.
