Red Hand bears fruit for players
EARLIER this year, an unnamed Tyrone player went to a national radio station to complain that they were expected to pay a levy to the county board for gear. That situation seems to have resolved itself and it is clear that Tyrone are doing everything in their power not to be left behind and are maximising every resource they have access to. Last Monday night week, hundreds of Tyrone people crammed into the Irish centre in Camden for the launch of the London chapter of Club Tyrone. They may not have 14 commercial partners, like Dublin, but the sense is that the Tyrone players who will step onto Croke Park this afternoon want for very little, too.
