As anticipation continues to build ahead of tomorrow’s rivalry clash of Armagh vs Tyrone, Kieran McGeeney has released his starting 15.
Armagh played some superb stuff this time last week and head into this game carrying a lot of momentum.
The swashbuckling football they played vs Dublin raised a lot of eyebrows throughout the country.
All eyes will be on the Orchard come Sunday afternoon as they host the All-Ireland champions.
Blaine Hughes is a nailed-on starter for McGeeney’s Armagh. He has once again been handed the number one shirt.
Aaron McKay was a late addition to the starting line up last Saturday evening. The Dromintee defender keeps his place at full back.
Experience heads Paddy Burns and Aidan Forker will line out in either corner and have pick man-marking jobs ahead vs Darren McCurry and Cathal McShane.
Connaire Mackin and Jarly Og Burns excelled chasing down the flanks of Croke Park. The pair will once again line out either side of Niall Rowland.
Tiernan Kelly has moved to centerfield, with Ben Crealey missing out through injury. Ciaran Mackin holds on to the number eight jersey following a brilliant performance in his league debut.
Greg McCabe is the one change to the starting line up that downed the Dubs. The Shane O’Neill’s man impressed when introduced last week, scoring a point.
Jemar Hall and play maker Rory Grugan hold on to their spots in the half forward line for Sunday’s clash.
Man of the Match vs Dublin, Rian O’Neill will begin the game at full forward. Once again Cullyhanna pair Aidan Nugent and Jason Duffy will complete the inside line.
There’s no room for Stefan Campbell, who made his 100th appearance for Armagh last week. He’ll likely have a massive role to play before the full-time whistle.
Niall Grimley also got on the scoresheet after coming on last week while Conor Turbitt is available, following QUB’s exit from the Sigerson Cup.
