Carrickmore's hopes of winning three Tyrone SFC titles in a row have been hit by an injury to Conor Gormley.

The Allstar county defender broke an ankle in a club game at the weekend and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The game against Killyclogher on Sunday night was abandoned after Gormley suffered the injury 10 minutes before half-time with Carrickmore leading.

The defending champions will now play Donaghmore in an SFC quarter-final on Friday 18 August without Gormley.

It is the latest in a series of setbacks for All-Ireland champions Tyrone, who lost playmaker Brian McGuigan with a broken leg.

Key players such as Brian Dooher, Stephen O'Neill and Gerard Cavlan also missed important championship games as the Red Hands relinquished their Sam Maguire Cup title.

Tyrone will not be in action again until next January.
