Barton and Harte plump for novel lineouts in Cup final

By Declan Bogue

Derry manager Damian Barton has thrown a curve ball in the way of his opposite number, Tyrone's Mickey Harte, in his team selection for tomorrow night's Dr McKenna Cup final (Pairc Esler, Newry, 7pm).

He has named a team lacking great experience, with six call-ups from the under-21 panel, whereas Harte names Mattie Donnelly at centre-back.

Meanwhile, Sean Cavanagh is likely to see gametime.

DERRY: B McKinless; C McGrogan, C Nevin, R Murphy; N Forester, O Duffin, M Warnock; C McAtamney, M McEvoy; E Lynn, J Kielt, P Hagan; M Lynch, R Bell, N Loughlin.

TYRONE: N Morgan; A McCrory, Justin McMahon, P Hampsey; J Munroe, M Donnelly, P Harte; C Cavanagh, P McNulty; D McClure, N Sludden, C Meyler; M Bradley, C McCullagh, R O'Neill.
