There's a very familiar name in the Tyrone minor full-forward line this weekend

Peter Canavan’s young lad is already making a name for himself.

ARE YOU READY for the Canavan era in Tyrone? Again.

There’s a very familiar name in the full-forward line for Sunday’s Ulster minor football meeting with Derry.

Darragh Canavan, son of the legendary Peter, starts at corner-forward for the Red Hand.

Not to put too much pressure on the young lad, but he looks handy. Here’s a video of him in action for his school, St Ciaran’s Ballygawley, back in 2014:

Canavan has also been lining out for the Tyrone U17s this season, and kicked five points earlier this month as they beat Down to book their place in the Ulster final.
