McGrath set for more surgery

Fermanagh's injury-ravaged midfielder Marty McGrath is to go under the knife again.

McGrath requires surgery for the second time in a year to correct a knee tendonitis problem.

He will miss the early games in the National Football League, as well as the entire Dr McKenna Cup campaign.

The former All-Star's absence will be a big blow to new manager John O'Neill, who had hoped to have a full strength squad from the start of the 2011 season.
