FORMER ANTRIM DUAL star CJ McGourty has been named in the Tyrone hurling side to face Monaghan in tomorrow’s Division 3A opener.

McGourty is set to line out at centre-half forward for the Red Hand

An All-Ireland club football winner and Ulster hurling champion with Belfast outfit St Gall’s, McGourty last played with the Saffron footballers in 2017.

The 32-year-old is a coach with the Ardboe club in Tyrone, and RTÉ Sport report that his inter-county transfer was approved in January.

He now opens a new chapter under the watchful eye of Michael McShane, a three-time Ulster winning manager with the Slaughtneil hurlers, who opens his Tyrone stewardship at Healy Park tomorrow.

Damian Casey captains the side.
