Frustrated Devlin quits Mournemen


By Declan Bogue

Down's Paul Devlin has walked off the Mourne senior football panel, with a number of other attacking talents now uncertain to make the Ulster Championship quarter-final clash against neighbours Armagh on June 4.

Kilcoo forward Devlin only came on as a late substitute against Galway, Derry and Meath in the National League, after being a mainstay under Down's previous managers James McCartan and Jim McCorry, and is frustrated at his lack of action.

"I spoke to Eamonn (Burns, Down manager) a few times and he said that I just needed to take my chance when I got it," said Devlin. "But in three months of football, I played only 35 minutes all in."

Meanwhile, forward Caolan Mooney is still awaiting results of a potential patellar tendon rupture.

Devlin's Kilcoo clubmates Ryan and Jerome Johnston are also struggling with hamstring and quad injuries respectively.
