Connor McAliskey hit the high spots on occasions when Tyrone landed four trophies from mid-December to mid-July but today his aspirations are focused in a different direction.

The stocky sharpshooter is hoping he can help pilot his Clonoe club into a place in the County Championship Football final when they meet Carrickmore in a quarter-final tie at Edendork (3.45).

For McAliskey, this is a match that offers a fascinating challenge between a Clonoe side that have surged to the fore in recent years and a Carrickmore outfit bolstered by a fine Championship pedigree.

His county colleague Michael O'Neill is alongside him to provide an extra layer of experience while Jonathan Munroe epitomises Carrickmore's physical edge.

In today's other quarter-final tie on an Edendork double-bill, Kildress will take on Coalisland (3.45pm). The match was ruled out last week-end because of a waterlogged pitch but both teams are now fired up for action with Kildress looking to Niall Quinn, Johnny Connolly, Philip Lennon, Des Treacy and Frank McGurk to set the tone for their display.

Coalisland are not short on talent and have a raft of experience within their side.
