The Dr. McKenna Cup campaign begins on January 4th – less than two weeks away – and new Donegal manager Rory Gallagher has named his panel.
It includes no fewer than 13 new faces and he is obviously going to use the competition to get a look at as many players as possible.
Among the players called into the panel are: Eoin McHugh and Ciaran McGinley from Kilcar
Ryan Marley (Ardara), Kevin McBrearty (Four Masters), Eamon Ward and Joe Gibbons (Glenswilly), goalkeeper Mark Anthony McGinley of St. Michael’s and his clubmate Daniel McLaughlin,, Conor Parke of St. Eunan’s, Cory Gallagher (Dungloe) , and Willie Gillespie (Naomh Colmcille). Gary “Copper” McFadden of Glenswilly is also called up.
Gallagher will meet with the players on December 29th.
Donegal’s opening game in the McKenna Cup is away to Derry.
