Cavanagh’s fighting fit

By Micheal McGeary

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte received a major boost last night with the news that Sean Cavanagh returned to action for his club Moy.

The 2008 footballer of the year played against Derry side Slaughtneil in the Ulster club league and managed to get among the scores.

And now he could well feature in the Tyrone squad for the must-win National league derby with Monaghan this Sunday.

Cavanagh had surgery on his ankle prior to Christmas and his comeback couldn’t have come at a better time with the Red Hands without a point to show for their efforts after successive defeats against Derry and Mayo.

And county manager Mickey Harte was naturally delighted with the news.

“Its great to see him back and that outing with his club will give him badly needed game time which of course he will be lacking,” he said.

“Hopefully he will have come through it with no ill-effects and if that’s the case he will train with us on Thursday night.

“All being well he would then be available for us for Sunday and while it may be asking too much of him to start he would certainly be in the panel and that would be a great option for us to have.”
