At just 20 years old, Martin Coyle is the youngest referee in the GAA to adjudicate an adult Tyrone football championship game.

Having recently taken charge at the Junior Championship clash between Errigal Ciaran and Coalisland’s thirds teams, the Cookstown native will see out another championship meeting between Killyman and Urney on Sunday evening.
