Gormley back in Errigal team
Eoin Gormley will lead Errigal Ciaran against Nemo Rangers
Eoin Gormley will lead Errigal Ciaran against Nemo Rangers
Errigal Ciaran will welcome back their captain Eoin Gormley for Sunday's All-Ireland club semi-final at Portlaoise against Munster champions Nemo Rangers.

Gormley, now fully recovered from a hamstring injury, comes in at left half-forward.

Aidan McGinley drops out of the starting line-up and is named as a replacement.

There are no other changes from the Errigal side which beat Enniskillen 0-08 to 1-03 in the Ulster final.

Gormley, whose participation in the Ulster championship was restricted by the injury, had been featuring at full-forward.

Broken jaw

But Peter Canavan's frequent switch from the left corner persuaded manager Mickey Harte to keep the All Star attacker on the edge of the square.

Errigal have seven Tyrone panellists in the side, including goalkeeper John Devine and central defenders Cormac McGinley and Paul Horisk.

Midfielder Peter Loughran, half-forwards Mark Harte and Enda McGinley, as well as Canavan, are also members of the county side.

Pascal Canavan, who sustained a broken jaw in the Ulster final, is fit to take his place in midfield alongside Loughran.

Adrian O'Donnell is out through suspension and he would also miss the final should Errigal get through.

Meanwhile, Nemo boss Billy Morgan has yet to decide whether to recall former Cork star Steven O'Brien for Sunday's semi-final.

O'Brien has recovered from a groin strain which restricted his pre-Christmas appearances to a number of substitute outings.

John Paul O'Neill has been operating in O'Brien's position of centre half-forward this season and could well hang onto his starting role.

Errigal Ciaran: J Devine, B O'Donnell, C McGinley, D Neill, Emmet McGinley, P Horisk, D Harte, Pascal Canavan, P Loughran, Enda McGinley, M Harte, E Gormley, R O'Donnell, Peter Canavan, D Tirney.
