Ulster Senior Football Championship Quarter-Final

TYRONE 0-22 DERRY 0-11

By Orla Bannon at Celtic Park

Sean Cavanagh top-scored with 0-7 as Tyrone eased to an 11-point Ulster Championship first round victory over Derry at Celtic Park.

It was the same margin of victory as last year’s corresponding fixture but perhaps this was a more encouraging win for Mickey Harte, who looks to have more depth to his squad than 12 months ago.

Their bench contributed seven points, six from play, while Conall McCann – considered a surprise starter in midfield – shone on his debut delivering a man of the match display.

Scorers for Tyrone: Sean Cavanagh 0-7 (6f), Darren McCurry 0-3, Lee Brennan 0-2 (1f), P Harte 0-2 (1f, 1 ’45’), Conall McCann 0-2, Tiernan McCann, Rory Brennan, Mark Bradley, David Mulgrew, Declan McClure, Colm Cavanagh 0-1 each.
