Dooher given Harte boost

Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has given long-serving skipper Brian Dooher a starting berth against Antrim for Sunday’s Ulster championship final at Clones (2.00pm).

Dooher,34, who has been engaged in a battle to regain full fitness after groin surgery earlier this year, played only cameo roles in wins over Armagh and Derry.

Harte has made a significant change at midfield, withdrawing Sean Cavanagh from full-forward where he has been flourishing lately to partner Kevin Hughes in the absence of the injured Enda McGinley.

TYRONE: J Devine: P J Quinn, Justin McMahon, R McMenamin; D Harte, C Gormley, P Jordan; K Hughes, S Cavanagh; B Dooher (capt), T McGuigan, Joe McMahon; M Penrose, S O’Neill, O Mulligan.
