Armagh club players off to America

There are a number of Armagh club players that will ply their trade in America for the remainder of the summer.

The transfer window closed on Saturday 1 July, but a number of club players had already made the move.

Two Crossmaglen players are off to New York but have joined different clubs. Miceal Murray is with Cork while Tony O’Callaghan has joined O’Donnovan Rossa.

O’Callaghan lined out at corner back against Granemore in last year’s SFC final and featured in the 2021 and 2020 showpieces as well.

Murray guarded the goals for the Rangers in last year’s Senior Championship, picking up his first SFC medal.

The Crossmaglen shot stopper kept a clean sheet against Granemore in the decider. But injury ruled him out of their Ulster tie with Ballybay.

Silverbridge sharpshooter Sean Rock, who hit 0-4 against Crossmaglen in last year’s SFC opening round, will join Murray at Cork.

Former Armagh u20 captain and Killeavy defender Lee Rice is also currently out in the Big Apple.

Rice has had a torrid time with injuries over the last few years but did make a couple of league appearances for Tommy Coleman’s side.

He also earned his Armagh debut earlier this year, coming on in their McKenna Cup ties against Antrim and Cavan.

Lissummon half forward Shea Trainor, who helped his side to last year’s JFC final, has joined Shannon Gaels.

Accurate attackers Cormac Kieran (An Port Mor) and Jason Kelly (Collegeland) will both spend the summer with Michael Cusack’s.

Oisin Hughes of Armagh Harps and Culloville attacker Steven McCreesh will play for the same club out in America having joined Parnell’s, Chicago.

Grange defender Ronan Mallon has joined Pittsburgh Celtic while Conor Tierney of Mullaghbawn will play for Aidan McAnespie’s.
