McGeeney names squad for Dr McKenna Cup semi against Tyrone

Armagh GAA boss Kieran McGeeney has named his squad to face Tyrone in the semi-final of the Dr McKenna Cup tomorrow night (Wednesday).

Crossmaglen’s Jamie Clarke and Tony Kernan will join Granemore’s Caolan Rafferty in the full-forward line.

In a feisty affair against Tyrone on January 4 – Kieran McGeeney’s first game as manager – Ciaran McKeever, Finnian Moriarty and Aaron Findon were all shown red, as the Red Hand county inflicted defeat thanks to two injury times points from Cathal McShane and Darren McCurry.
